Arrived in Parkersburg after a great visit in Shepherdstown with the folks at the Public Library and the Four Seasons Bookstore.

And speaking of libraries, what a great new one they have at the South Branch in Parkersburg! I had the pleasure of being there on August 15th, because the main library was closed for renovation. Felt lucky to be in such a well-designed space and lucky to meet readers and staff members Dawn and Sheryl.

Other Parkersburg pleasures included the museum and Blennerhassett Island. If you’re ever in the area, don’t miss these two attractions. Lots to learn about our history on the early American frontier.
