St. Lawrence Ripples

My dad, Murray Shor, is so awesome! He's 82 and has been an editor, columnist and writer most of his adult life. A few weeks ago he calls me up and ask me if I might consider helping him to self publish a book.

I was like, you bet! 

His book, St. Lawrence Ripples, is a compilation of twenty columns he wrote in 1957 for the the newspaper in Potsdam, New York. His columns were all based on historical documentation and told the many stories and tall tales that inundated that area, some going back to the early 1700s.

It debuts March 1, 2014 as a Softcover and eBook.

  1. How exciting to work on this project with your father! I am sure you will both be over the top excited on the 1st. It sounds like a wonderful compilation. Thanks for sharing!

  2. It is exciting, Jess! My father hasn't been this jazzed about a project for some time. He's got his spark back.

  3. Joyce, that is so cool! How nice to share the love of writing with your dad and even better that you're able to help him.
