Ken & Joy (Neal) Brown and Joy's brother, Wayne Neal, are the authors for a book-in-progress that we're calling "Aunt Joy's Untitled Book" at the moment. Collection of materials and preparation of narratives and illustrations has been going on through most of 2015. Presently, in 2016, the authors are writing the narrative and choosing photos and exhibits to go in the chapters. When completed, the authors will publish the book as a 8-1/2" x 11" hardback & a perfect bound book using Lulu Publishing Company's print-on-demand technology.

See Ken's Hartley book on another page that was published and printed using the Lulu approach in November 2014. The Hartley book was built much as this one will be--early drafts will be put online for interested readers to enjoy.

This page contains the latest drafts created by the authors. The date of the latest draft will appear behind each chapter title.
