We have just added this lovely pictorial tour of Nantucket to our collection in memory of Marcia Sartorelli, a gift from the West Dennis Garden Club. Written by Leslie Linsley, a local writer for several Nantucket newspapers and a frequent television guest, with beautiful photography by Terry Pommett, this is not a gardening book per se but a glimpse at what seaside homes and gardens can be.
Folk Art of Cape Cod and the Islands is a beautiful celebration of the folk art and history of Cape Cod compiled by Cape Cod resident Jeanne Marie Carley, who just happens to be a lover of both! Our library might not normally consider purchasing such a book due to the cost, but through the generosity of the Friends of the Library the book was bought for our collection in memory of, and in tribute to, Burton Derick. Burt was our local historian as well as the librarian for the Dennis Historical Society, the library of which happens to be housed on our second floor. Burt was a proud native Cape Codder and loved everything Cape Cod. We are sure he would have been delighted with this choice. A detailed review of the book was recently published in the Cape Cod Times . (10/20/2014)
Please come in and enjoy this very special addition to our Cape Cod Collection and help us pay tribute to a very special friend of our library - Burt Derick.
