Spotlight on a NH Author

The next issue of Book Notes (which is currently being printed) includes a biographical sketch of one of New Hampshire's literary treasures, Thomas Bailey Aldrich. In addition to the article, I put together a small display about him in the NH Author's Room as part of our fledgling Spotlight on NH Authors series.

In the course of putting this together I was reminded what wonderful resources we have available to us here in New Hampshire. The NH State Library holdings go back far enough that I was able to read the articles and reviews of Aldrich's work in the magazines they originally appeared in -- even though they were published more than 100 years ago!
