The inner workings of the Farnsworth "Vaudio"

The Farnsworth Replica Blueprint is a 1:1 scale exact re-creation of the technical treasure trove seen in Episode 3, Season 2 of the hit SyFy show, Warehouse 13. What do we mean by "exact"?  Well, it's printed directly from the original file that was used to create the screen-used prop.

One Book One Valley

Talk Funny Girl

The Book of Choice for One Book One Valley's 8th year is The Talk Funny Girl by Roland Merullo. Readers may recognize Merullo as the author of Breakfast with Buddha and Golfing with God but this novel is very different from the author's prior musings about Life, Religion and the State of the Universe.


Young Marjorie Richards is challenged more than most teens. Brought up in an economically depressed, Talk Funny Girlbackwoods area of New Hampshire, her poorly educated parents keep her terrorized and on a short leash. They are unduly influenced by the preacher of their church - himself a sinister indidvidual. "Majie," as they call Marjorie, is kept isolated - so isolated that the kids in her high school call her "the talk-funny girl."


How Marjorie escapes this tyranny and finds the inner strength to believe in herself makes a fascinating and uplifting tale.


The Maine reader's choice award for 2013 goes to Wiley Cash for 'A Land More Kind Than Home'
