Fulton Books authors Robert Shaw and Susan Shaw, a couple and retired teachers, have completed their most recent book “It’s Just an Old Book”: a captivating read with a tinge of mystery due to its origin. The true author of this manuscript remains unknown up to this day. This might just be an old book to some; but to Mr. and Mrs. Shaw, going through the pages of this book is like experiencing the past decades through someone else’s memories. 

Shaw shares, “It’s Just an Old Book is a title given to a manuscript found by a library worker. The manuscript under discussion is a description of rural life in West Virginia during the late thirties, the forties, and early fifties. The title with particular punctuations, ‘I Remember? I Remember. I Remember!’ provides the framework for the manuscript. All of the short stories give a historical glimpse of the past. The question mark, the period, and the exclamation mark provide clues as to the degree of memory involved. The manuscript is placed within the context of a book club meeting. The members of the club react to various sections and often add their own memories to the discussion.”
