Some of John Nassivera’s best memories of growing up were sitting on his parents’ Williams Street front porch, listening to his mother tell stories.

“She’d make up stories and they always had some dilemma, and everyone on the porch would be in the story and, in the end, they’d play a part in conquering the dilemma,” he said.

Nassivera is following in her storytelling footsteps, with the recent release of “The Garden Raid,” a fictional story set in Hudson Falls in 1967 that follows the adventures of misfit fourth-grader John and the group of sixth-grade boys he’s trying to befriend.
