On Saturday, December 10th from 11 am to 3 pm, guests are invited to the North Country Folkstore (located in The TAUNY Center, downtown Canton) to meet the founders of Bloated Toe Publishing, a company dedicated to publishing the work of local authors and organizations in the North Country.
Award-winning author Lawrence Gooley and his partner Jill Jones, both North Country natives, founded Bloated Toe Enterprises in 2004 and have since published 75 titles, including a number of historical Adirondack reprints.
In addition to his work in the publication field, Lawrence has also written 21 books and over 175 articles on the history of the region; he is a weekly contributor to Adirondack Almanack.
Bloated Toe will be at The TAUNY Center on December 10th with a variety of their books for sale and will be available to talk with TAUNY Center visitors about their books and their experience in publishing.
This event is free and open to the public.
The TAUNY Center is located at 53 Main Street, downtown Canton. TAUNY is a nonprofit organization that showcases the folk culture and living traditions of New York’s North Country. More information is available on their website.
