Delays push back Lake Worth’s cottages book’s publishing date

Cottages book cover

LAKE WORTH — Readers are going to have to wait a little longer for “Living Large in Small Spaces: The Cottages of Lake Worth.”

The 240-page hardcover book was expected to go to print in the spring, but numerous delays have pushed back that timeline.

“Our timeline was…naive,” Janice Snearer, the book’s project coordinator, said.

The book should be out by October, Snearer said, adding that those who pre-ordered it will be notified about pickup and delivery details.

The book, authored by the late Dean Sherwin and one that features 200 color pictures, details the history of about 60 cottage homes and how homeowners decorate them.

Sherwin passed away in March at the age of 72 from pancreatic cancer. He finished the last chapter of the book while in treatment.

“We’re trying to appeal to people who want to downsize or who like small houses,” Sherwin told The Palm Beach Post shortly before his death. “Not everybody likes living in a mega-mansion.”
