Massachusetts was first settled over 7,000 years ago. It has a long and storied history. From the Salem Witch Trials to the birthplace of Dr. Seuss, from
Louisa May Alcott to Edgar Allen Poe, Massachusetts offers a range of fascinating, evocative, and historically important moments to explore and understand.

Enjoy the works of these fifteen local authors as they celebrate the rich history, legacy, and beauty of Massachusetts.

Some essays talk about our own histories – what it was like to grow up in the 1930s 
and 1940s. How Worcester has changed since the 1960s. Traditional recipes treasure fond memories of our grandparents. We explore the tumultuous times of the King Philip's War where natives came up against the waves of newcomers.

Other works celebrate our world of now. There are tales of fishing off of Boston 
and of exploring Cape Cod. Poems about shells and beloved pets.

Fictional stories explore the world that might be. There's a spooky look at the 
Spider Gates Cemetery in Leicester. A playful romp at Water's Farm in Sutton. 
A Dorky Dad becomes a minuteman. A young woman faces the life-lessons of revenge.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy our journeys through Massachusetts!
