Unique and strikingly elegant, this book provides readers the rare opportunity to explore the remarkably creative life of Anthony Quinn. Designed, printed, and bound with exceptional quality, the book opens with a foreword by Anthony's widow Katherine Quinn.
In April 2003, the Board of Directors of The Providence Athenaeum finalized the publication of a book commemorating its 250th anniversary, Inquire Within: a social history of The Providence Athenaeum since 1753. The book was researched and written by author Jane Lancaster, Ph.D.
Karen Philippi's photography and Malcolm Grear's visually stunning design will compel the reader to rediscover the hidden treasures housed within the Athenaeum's walls. The book is available at the library's circulation desk (no phone or postal orders), at select local bookstores and through Oak Knoll Press.

Cynthia Treen has a way with fabric. She can pick up a piece of cloth and, literally within an hour or two, transform it into something wonderful—a chic wool hat from an out–of–style sweater, say, or an elegant blossom from a favorite piece of silk. In Last-Minute Fabric Gifts, the follow–up to the immensely successful Last–Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson, Treen teaches all of us to perform such fabric magic no matter how little sewing experience we may have.
