The Alpha Reads: John Hardy Wright

If you go to Salem, Massachusetts and you’re left feeling not quite sated in your quest for knowledge, then you definitely owe it to yourself to seek out the written work of local historian and appraiser John Hardy Wright.

Born and raised in Salem, John has amassed a wealth of knowledge and resources that have made him one of the most prominent local authors. Local history, as well as the life and times of one of the nation’s greatest authors are just some of the topics he has covered.

But what if Salem just isn’t your cup of tea? That’s fine, because John has also covered other North Shore towns such as Beverly and Marblehead.

Maybe you’re a fan of Wicked Tuna, which is filmed live in the town of Gloucester, which is as famous for it’s Catholic traditions as it is for being one of the most prominent fishing communities in New England.

And if you really want to broaden your horizons, you can also read up on Provincetown.

All of these books and more are available online. But if you’re in the area, you can also find them in Barnes and Noble, or anywhere Boston or the North Shore that carries books by local authors.
