Here is a panoramic photo of the launch last night of this collection of short stories about our ancestors. The nine authors (center) were present, along with invited family members and friends. Gail Dever, rear left, an original member of our writing group and now celebrated writer of the blog, acted as emcee.

The authors all brought some of the family heirlooms that inspired their stories.
