There is something new and exciting happening at Spinner Publications in New Bedford.  The firm has a long history of publishing books about New Bedford and its people. Now, publisher Joe Thomas has taken on a new challenge, publishing novels with connections to the Whaling City, the sea, and other local landmarks. Thomas stops by Townsquare Sunday this week to discuss some of his new releases, and the future of Spinner Publications.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
