Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Saturday, May 28, 2022
I got this hardcover, inscribed by Granny D to a previous owner, at a local thrift shop. Doris "Granny D" Haddock was a notable New Hampshire woman who staged a cross-country walk from 1999 to 2000 - at the age of 90, yet. She had been a political activist since the 1960s, but became more interested in national affairs - specifically campaign finance reform - in the 1990s, leading to her 3,200-mile walk over 14 months. (She died shortly after her 100th birthday. A remarkable person!)

Released 2 mos ago (10/4/2022 UTC) at Arms Park in Manchester, New Hampshire USA


I plan to leave this book on a bench somewhere in Arms Park; hope someone enjoys it! (Update: left as planned, though the bench with the lifesized sculpture on it was occupied by some living people as well; got it in the photo but left the book on the next bench over.)
