Spinner Publications celebrates New Bedford and its new book, A Picture History of New Bedford, Volume 1 (1602-1925), with a book signing at our offices on 164 William Street, New Bedford, on AHA! Night, December 12 from 6 to 9 PM. Throughout the evening, the book’s five authors, Joseph Thomas, Alfred Saulniers, Natalie White, Marsha McCabe and Jay Avila, will sign both cloth-covered and paperback books.

A Picture History of New Bedford is the first extensive city history to appear in decades. Its two volumes capture the city’s journey through hundreds of photographs and stories. The first volume spans from 1602 to 1925 and traces New Bedford’s story from native Wampanoag hunting ground, straight-laced Quaker enclave and world-class whaling powerhouse to Underground Railroad stronghold, fine textile producer and fledgling fishing port.

Spinner Publications is a New Bedford-based, non-profit cultural organization whose mission is to record and promote the history and culture of Southeastern Massachusetts. Among Spinner’s award-winning titles are Lincoln Park Remembered, Portuguese Spinner: An American Story, Brick by Brick: A Woman’s Journey, Branded on My Arm and in My Soul and the anthology series, Spinner: People Culture in Southeastern Massachusetts.
