Thank you for visiting Farksolia! I’m Stefan Cooke, and I’m a freelance web designer—I work with my wife, Resa Blatman, at Blatman Design, in Somerville, Massachusetts. And I’m a publisher with two books on my Farksolia imprint: Barbara Newhall Follett: A Life in Letters (2015) and Lost Island (plus three stories and an afterword) (2020).
For the past 25 years or so I’ve been researching my family history. I had been planning a website for them, but my visit to the Follett archives at Columbia University in 2012 persuaded me that Barbara should have a site of her own. I find her writing so very good and her life so compelling that letting her vanish (again) into history seemed a shame.
Again, my thanks to you for visiting Farksolia.
