‘Where the Unforgotten Runs atop the Soul of This Rare Earth, A Gathering of Memories, the Writing Kind’ By Thomas Sheehan

Three men, in constant contact, realize that their hometown has no written record of the times they have spent here and getting here, and decide to write and publish a collection of such similar approaches of a host of citizens, including those who moved away or were lost in the wars they have known. It is an adventure of a task and eventual cost of publication of the collection is raised by donation as gathered by a trusted friend, 400 copies are dropped in one editor’s driveway on a Saturday morning, carted to a Founder’s Day celebration in the heart of the town. All 400 copies go like wildfire, 1600 more are sold, and another book is composed and published and sold out, and all income is donated to the local high school where one of the editors is head of the English Department for over 40 years, and the other editor is a former student of his.
