Ross's Corner

Ross Connelly is the retired editor of The Hardwick Gazette and a part-time bookseller. He is our biggest non-fiction reader on staff and often reviews the books he's read, so we've made a special place to highlight his reviews! Many of these titles are interesting takes on history and social justice.
