This is one of my favorite rooms in Queset House, a learning commons owned by the Ames Free Library. See the bust on the left? That's Oliver Ames, who left $50,000 in his will for the construction of a public library in his beloved hometown of North Easton, Mass. I'll be here at Queset House through the end of August. If you're in or near North Easton, Massachusetts, and want to talk about your books or mine, please get in touch with me. We can meet right here to talk, plot, or scheme.
