In honor of Newark’s 350th anniversary, the Newark Public Library announces the publication of Knowing Newark: Selected Star-Ledger Columns by city historian and librarian Charles F. Cummings in a 112-page book.
Knowing Newark: Selected Star-Ledger Columns by Charles F. Cummings is available for order on Amazon.com. The 112-page book is available for $6.74 ($2.75 for the book + $3.99 shipping). The book will be available free of charge at any Newark Public Library location.
The Library has also created a companion Knowing Newark website that will make all 500 of Cummings’ columns available for the first time. The first 100 columns are already online at knowingnewark.npl.org and the rest will be added over the course of the year. Each column is illustrated and keyword searchable.
