Nah, still workin’ on the Goody Cole book, but it’ll be out sooner rather than later. The book I’m talking about is a history and memoir of Marelli’s Market in Hampton, New Hampshire, a Mom-and-Pop grocery famous in these parts for its candy and roasted nuts, which is getting ready to celebrate its 100th year in 2014. The book was written by sisters Karen Raynes and Marcia Hannon-Buber, granddaughters of Luigi and Celestina Marelli, the Italian immigrants who opened the store in 1914. That’s Grammy and Grandpa Marelli in the photos on the book cover below. It’s a great book full of family history and photos, original artwork by Karen, and wonderful stories of what it was like to grow up at Marelli’s.
I’ve had the privilege of putting the book together and designing the cover. If all goes well (and of course it all will!), the book will go on sale in December.
Believe that you will succeed and you will.
