Author Talk with Robert E. Weir
The book Who Knew? Roadside Revelations in Western Massachusetts delves into the history of local curiosities “hidden” in plain sight. It is a travel guide, an accessible history, and an offbeat love letter to Western Mass. The book explores local oddities, explodes tall tales, and gives insight into things locals many have wondered about, but never stopped to appreciate.
