Former L'pool resident publishes book

In 2002, Marthe Colvig Hildreth’s sister surprised her with an old family artifact: a letter to their grandmother, then 5 years old, from their great-aunt. That letter sparked the former Liverpool resident to spend the next decade compiling her memories into her first book. “Bright Blessed Days: Slices of Life in America from 1895 to 1967” is a collection of old family photos, letters and Hildreth’s own reflections on life in Liverpool, Buffalo and Sarasota, Florida, where she now resides.
