Hopkinton resident Brian Plumb presented his recently published book, "A History of Longfellow's Wayside Inn", at the Hopkinton Public Library at the end of January. What was interesting about Plumb's book was that he is not an author, but described himself as a corporate finance guy. It was his research skills that allowed him to write about 300 years of the inn's history in just five months.
"I've been involved with the Inn for over 10 years," said Plumb after his presentation. "I was able to get through the research fairly efficiently. I am good at research."
