Owl Pen Books & Saratoga Apple


I took a drive up to Saratoga Apple Sunday to get a load of fabulous freshly picked honey crisp apples and on the way back stopped off at Owl Pen Books in a "land that time forgot" north of the village of Greenwich on 166 Riddle Road, just a bit south of Cossayuna Lake. The bookstore is on a beautiful farm with a large barn containing most of the books. I bought a nice copy of John C. Gardner's The Art of Living and Other Stories for $8.00 (including tax). Gardner is one of my favorite authors. He wrote some great books prior to his death by motorcycle accident. He lived for a time in nearby Cambridge, NY and Old Bennington, VT when he taught creative writing at Bennington College.
