Peter Cassels-Brown will present The Key: Reflections and Wisdom of a New England Carpenter (published by iUniverse) at the 2013 Guadalajara Book Fair, Dec. 5-8, 2013.

The Key is a combination of timeless philosophy and true stories which illustrate that philosophy. Its eloquence is in its simplicity, directness and honesty.
