Who knew writers even had publicists?

The Rise, Fall, and Rebirth of the American Community

What brings us all together are our words, our associations, our tastes, and how we choose to gather. For centuries, we gathered around a fire, around religion, in a town square, or at the local brew house. Somewhere things got lost in the shuffle as we evolved beyond the family unit, the congregation, the dance hall, or even those sweet local suds.
