Shadow By the Bridge is Latest Release From NFB Publishing

Shadow By the Bridge is Latest Release From NFB Publishing

NFB Publishing in Buffalo announces the release of Shadow By the Bridge by author Suzanne Zewan.

Set during the time of the infamous Linden, N.Y. murders, Shadow By the Bridge is written from the perspective of 11-year-old Linden resident Fritz Reynolds and focuses on how these terrible events change his hometown and himself. In the book, Reynolds recalls his father telling him that man is the only creature who can find amusement in killing. Little did he realize that those words would become the theme for his teenage years growing up in the rural hamlet. 

In this coming-of-age story, Reynolds takes us back to a simpler time when neighbors gathered at the general store to listen to radio shows, drank barrel-aged cider and worshiped at the Baptist Church every Sunday. All was picturesque in his close-knit farming community until terror was unleashed on them.

Buffalo Solar Solutions Inc., the successful solar energy startup that opened in South Buffalo in 2015, is expanding into the Southern Tier with the opening of a second location. The new office will be located at 13 West Main St. in Cuba, N.Y.

Buffalo Solar Solutions specializes in rooftop and pole-mounted solar systems, and recently introduced solar pergolas to their growing product portfolio.
