Lynne Potts

Lynne Potts is the author of A Block in Time: History of Boston’s South End Through a Window on Holyoke, a chronicle of two hundred years in a neighborhood that has experienced dramatic ups and downs since it was first built on land fill in swamp lands of the Boston Harbor. Of the book, one reviewer wrote: These pages portray the transformation of a neighborhood culturally, economically, socially and architecturally as it has gone from splendor through deterioration to dignified elegance. It can serve as an inspiration for people who care about their neighborhoods and want to see them work.

Lynne has also published magazine and newspaper articles on people, places, and current events including ones on controversial housing development projects and library branch closings. Her travel articles have appeared in The Globe newspaper and The Online Travel Journal. The story, “Shoes for Rent” was published by Guernica Magazine.
