Most of the personal stories in “Keepers of Our Culture” appear in a column of the same name in The Cedar Street Times, a local Pacific Grove, California newspaper, owned and published weekly by Marge Ann Jameson.

Stories are written by a variety of guest columnists, or Patricia Hamilton, publisher, and Joyce Krieg, editor, of a Monterey County book publishing company: Park Place Publications.

Occasionally, writing tips and story prompts will be published.
