Hi Merritt,

Salem is definitely a change from Memphis! I've been working in the Salem office of a publishing company called The History Press, but I have actually just transferred to the Charleston, SC office. Our publisher in Salem, though, is from Memphis too-- you should look her up! Her name is Saunders Robinson.

say hi to the witches for me,

If you're interested in the tannery history check out my book, Woburn: Hidden Tales of a Tannery Town. You can find a review of it on

Woburn is the ultimate tannery town. In fact their football team is called the Tanners. And our Historical Society has a great video called: WOBURN: A LEATHER CITY

It was awarded the 29th Annual Silver Telly for best historical video/film of 2008. It tells the story of Woburn's tanning industry from the 1700s through its final demise in 1988.

Check it out at: then click on the link at the top of the page.

Welcome Merritt! How are plans for the Peabody Leather Museum coming along? We have a rich leather-making history in Norwood, as well, so I am very interested in what comes of the museum!
