Oak Ridge — Marianne Previty, a longtime resident of Oak Ridge, finally gave into the pleas of family and friends and published “The Last Box.” In this book, Previty takes the reader on a humorous 24-year journey with her family. She expounds upon many familiar situations that come up as one grows older. While filling out a form pertaining to her age, she was horrified to discover that after 65, there are no more boxes to check off — hence her book’s title. Previty’s irreverent humor even pokes fun at death: “This is the year everything went, the dishwasher went, the washing machine went and grandma went.” The author describes “The Last Box” as a fun summer read and she says it makes a great gift. The book can be purchased at barnesandnoble.com and amazon.com. It is also available at the following area businesses: Images Hair Salon in Butler, Lynne’s Hallmark in Kinnelon and Lighting Emporium Country Gift Shoppe in Ringwood.
