    Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST
    Event Description:
    The name Winnipesaukee was derived from the word “Wiwininebesaki.” In the Algonquian Sodoki language, it has been determined to mean “the Lakes Region.” This beautiful lake is estimated as having 183 miles of shoreline. It’s the largest known lake in NH containing an estimated 365 scattered islands. In the 1920’s and 30’s, the Granite State had pioneers of aviation, one whose name was Robert Fogg. Not only was he a pioneer in NH, but he was one of the founders of the FBO (fixed base operator) industry. The FBO allowed commercial businesses to operate on airport grounds providing services to the airport. The Air Commerce Act was passed by the government in 1926. In Rice’s book: Bob Fogg and New Hampshire’s Golden Age of Aviation, we see a local aviator’s adventurous and independent spirit coupled with the history of a new industry. Before bridges, Bob Fogg used his seaplane to transport mail and newspapers back and forth to the islands from the Weirs among other tasks. Originally published by Peter E Randall in 2012, we offer to you a historical book with enduring value. Filled with a fascinating account of airplanes, Lakes Region history and wonderful old photographs, this book is a must have for those interested in NH history, antique airplanes, or book collectors. Jane Rice, local author and historian, is a graduate of Laconia High School, and has been a librarian at the Moultonborough public library for over 35 years. Please come by Annie’s on Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 10-noon, meet the author, and pick up a signed copy of Jane’s wonderful book. Situated on the Barton’s Motel property at 1330 Union Avenue in Laconia for over 35 years, Annie’s has been a local book stop landmark for anyone interested in stimulating conversation, education, literacy and stress reduction!
