Penfield resident Stephen Nazarian has lived his life by one princlple: “No matter how any given situation turns out, as long as you come out of it with a good story, it was worth doing.” On his blog he’s recounted times in his life this philosophy has proven useful and has now fulfilled his dream of compiling fifty-two of his unique memoir-esque fables into a book.


The Psychic Highway by Michael T. Keene 

How the Erie Canal changed America 

In Keene’s fifth book on New York history, he navigates the Erie Canal’s significance as it weaves its way through race relations, women’s rights, industrialization, and religion.

The canal’s intersectionality makes it the perfect symbol for what it means to live in upstate New York.
