Palmyra teamed with the Alling Coverlet Museum in
Palmyra to present "Books, Authors and Friends," on

Gary L. Fitzpatrick
Gary has many serious history and reference books to
his credit and other genres. He worked for over thirty
years in the Geography and map division of the
Library of Congress, lived in Hawaii and taught at the
University of Hawaii.
Some of his books include:
Ruth Rosenberg-Naparsteck and Rose O'Keefe
Ruth has over twenty books on regional history and teaches American
History at R.I.T. She also founded Heron's Bend Productions. There
is a link to her book "The Erie Canal" on this site.
After buying an 1865 cottage in the South Wedge in 1976, Rose began
research of the area. She wrote for The Wedge a newspaper dedicated
to that area and wrote her first Arcadia book "Rochester's South Wedge."
Brooks and I traded books at the fair. Of course
"Marco Flamingo" is an easier read than "New Silk Road!"
Brooks also wrote "The Ten Thousand Things."
Both novels center around the intrigue of the drug
and weapons trade.
There were other vendors at the fair who kept all of us
deliciously fed! And more who displayed their business
products and crafts:
Carol & Curt Schreiner

Amber is a distributor of essential oils through
Young Living. She is a vibrant personality that
is dedicated to whole body wellness. Just a whiff
of the peppermint oil snapped me out off my morning
grogginess better than the coffee I was drinking.
Vero is a crochet artist who creates colorful hats, scarves, purses
and jewelry. I am keeping her in mind for holiday gifts!
