A new book of photos and verse by Sarah Booker honors her family home of Put-in-Bay. Every letter of the alphabet features a Put-in-Bay sight and story. Booker’s goal is “to touch everyone who comes to the island, stays on the island or is from the island.”
The book started as a poem dedicated to the diverse group of people that call South Bass Island home. Booker knows the island well, as her mother’s family has been here nearly 80 years. Her parents met on the island when her father was with the Coast Guard and her mom worked in the fisheries.
For now “The Island Alphabet” is available only at The Keys and at Local Color on South Bass Island.
