Tanglewood Picnic Book
Gina has decided that in her heart of hearts, she wants to create a beautiful little gift book that celebrates the tradition of picnics held on the Tanglewood Lawn during concerts at Boston Symphony Orchestra’s summer campus in Lenox, Massachusetts.
This topic is too narrow to be of interest to a traditional publisher, but she has faith there’s a significant niche audience, so she’s going to professionally self-publish it. File under: labor of love.
She’s looking for photos of Tanglewood picnics (both lavish and modest), favorite picnic recipes, outdoor dining tips, and related picnic ephemera (such as invitations and menus) from all eras of the festival’s eight-decade history. Do you have a Tanglewood picnic tradition you’d like to share? For details about how to submit your images and stories, please see tanglewoodpicnicbook.tumblr.com.
