Quincy Abbott head shotWestborough – Author Quincy S. Abbot will be signing copies of his new book, “From Schoolboy to Soldier: The Correspondence and Journals of Edward Stanley Abbot, 1853-?1863,” at Tatnuck Bookseller Saturday, Aug 3, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Stanley Abbot (1841?-1863) longed to become an acknowledged writer and, now,150 years after his death, his exceptional talent has been brought to light by the publication of his grandnephew Quincy S. Abbot's “From Schoolboy to Soldier: The Correspondence and Journals of Edward Stanley Abbot, 1853-?1863.”? An intensely personal account of the short but meaningful life of a mid-19th century New England lad, the book tells of Stanley's struggles with himself, his siblings and parents, and the world as he attempts to establish himself as a writer, an adult, and an officer in the Union Army of the Potomac.

Tatnuck Bookseller is located at the Westborough Shopping Center, Route 9 and Lyman Street.
