Door County resident Joseph M. Lopez recently published Gas Station Stories and Other Poems. An observation of extraordinary people in ordinary communities, the book is a collection of works that mention or hint at gas stations.
“Where I live, they [gas stations] bring people together,” Lopez said. “We know the owners and co-workers at these places. They are family and friends. The bright beacons of these stations call us in for necessities or give us a place to stretch our legs. They are places to find every type of character, in every state of mind.”
The book is available for purchase on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as Welsing’s Foodland, 4436 Whitefish Bay Rd. in Valmy.
