Working at the Word Factory: The Curious Life of a Small-Town Newspaper Journalist by Eric Poor (Brookline, NH: Hobblebush Books, 2013)

If you ever wondered what it would be like to work at a small town newspaper then this book is for you. Eric Poor spent 17 years working as a reporter for the award-winning newspaper now known as The Monadnock Ledger-Transcript,  During his career he won numerous writing awards from, and was twice named Columnist of the Year by, the New Hampshire Press Association.  He is an EMT, a photographer, an avid outdoor sportsman and is active in his community. He lives in Rindge.

"Reporter Eric Poor found himself flying in an antique WWII bomber one day and serving on a panel with a MAD magazine editor the next. He might be climbing a mountain in the snow to interview a man celebrating his 80th birthday and the next day be hitching a flight to Belize. His job as a journalist and photographer brought him countless adventures. Curiosity may have killed a cat but it makes a journalist’s motor purr." --Publisher's blurb.
