As Joy already mentioned, J.D. Salinger died last week. He did indeed live just over the river from Windsor and this interesting article was featured on the front page of the New York Times online,Salinger was a regular to the local Windsor diner, grocery store, as well as other local spots. "J. D. Salinger a Recluse? Well, Not to His Neighbors".
A local friend mentioned that Salinger frequented his grandparents Windsor eatery and believes that several of the characters from Catcher in the Rye were based on local people. Just another interesting piece of literary history for our local Windsor.
