The story continues:
Payson resident, Faye Musselman, visiting Fall River, was observed dressed in a plaid skirt, trimmed white blouse and oxford shoes. She kept twisting her pig tails as she approached each girl offering a Justin Bieber CD in exchange for their book. It was only when a suspicious parent pointed out Ms. Musselman to Michael and Dennis that Faye admitted she wanted to fill the book shelf in the titanium structure she had built inside her home for reading of this massive work. Sadly, she was asked to vacate the premises but grinned as she headed for the door, leaning slightly sideways from the weight of the 7 books she had traded.
The “American Girl” tea was a rousing success and all the little girls agreed the next doll to be made definitely had to be Lizzie Borden – truly an American Girl.
Parallel Lives will be in book stores on Monday and available as the Fall River Historical Society gift shop. When going to purchase the book, bring water and snacks as the lines will be very long.
