Essex County Chronicles: Remembering Manchester's 'literary superstar," Herb Kenny


"Cape Ann: Cape America" concludes with one of Kenny's own poems, "At a Gloucester Memorial," inspired by a visit to the famed "Man at the Wheel" statue overlooking Gloucester Harbor. It paid tribute, as does the memorial itself, to the fishermen of Gloucester who ".. had shopped a square dance with their wives, barked at their children and filled their pipes," and later perished at sea.


Jim McAllister of Salem writes a weekly column on the history of the North Shore.
