Announcing North Shore Baby!

December 6, 2011 |

After much labor, Union Park Press is pleased to announce the publication of North Shore Baby!

For those of you who are familiar with Boston Baby: A Field Guide for Urban Parents, you know that North Shore Baby is bound to be a big success among parents in Essex County. Local author and veteran mom of three, Dana Rousmaniere has scoured the region to find the best playspaces, classes, bargains, family dining spots, and general resources that local parents can use to make the most of these wonderful years (that go by too quickly!)  What makes North Shore Baby so wonderful, though, is Dana’s commitment to bringing parents a variety of outdoor activities–from beaches to bike trails and camping to canoe trips–this book is dedicated to showing families how they can best take advantage of the unique beauty of Boston’s North Shore.

Dana Rousmaniere has written for Fit Pregnancy, Good Housekeeping, The Atlantic Monthly Online, Women’s Health, TripAdvisor, AOL’s City’s Best, Babble, Northshore, and others. Dana lives on Boston’s beautiful North Shore with her husband and three children.

We’re also pleased to announce that North Shore Baby will be as well as be available online and in local boutiques and bookstores, including the following fine book sellers:

Toadhall in Rockport

The Andover Bookstore

The Spirit of ’76 in Marblehead

The Book Rack in Newburyport

Leading up to its release, North Shore Baby has been getting buzz around the region, including being a featured gift recommendation in a special gift guide supplement for the Wicked Local newspapers in the towns north of  Boston, such as the Amesbury News, Georgetown Record, Hamilton-Wenham Chronicle, The Ipswich Chronicle, Newburyport Current, North Andover Citizen, Tri-Town Transcript, Beverly Citizen, Cape Ann Beacon, Danvers Herald, Marblehead Reporter, North Shore Sunday, Salem Gazette, and the Swampscott Reporter.
