  • Bill Felker’s new book offers riches of home

    Local almanac writer Bill Felker recently published a new book, “Home Is the Prime Meridian,” a collection of nature essays drawn from his News columns and elsewhere. Pictured here in his greenhouse with a bound version of his daybook, Felker recalled how his wife’s gift of a barometer in 1972 got him started on observing weather patterns and other natural phenomena.

    Camel crickets in the tub. Robinsong and its absence. A koi pond in winter. Hepatica, violet cress, bloodroot, Virginia bluebells. The “iconography” of light on a wall. Memories of adolescent devotion in a Catholic seminary. All of these subjects illuminate local almanac writer Bill Felker’s new book.
