The Legacy of the Crook'd Staff
Pete Roller, local author of a compelling fictional trilogy about an Irish American family, The Crook’d Staff Trilogy-the second in the series. It starts in 1857 and ends in 1997 with an epilogue set in 2001. “The second book is more of a cerebral read,” Roller stated. “It’s tougher.” He explained that the complexity lies mostly in jumping between letters, diary entries, and narration.
