Chip Bishop Honored as ‘Friend of the Year’

The Friends awarded its first “Friend of the Year” award Jan. 5, to local author Chip Bishop, in recognition of his encouragement, wisdom, and patience while working with the Friends Executive Board. An experienced political and communication strategist with a lifetime of achievements, including working as a campaign and administration aide to President Jimmy Carter, Chip guided the Friends to expand its reach, and to raise public awareness of the Mashpee Public Library’s free resources and services.

Chip is a former Library Trustee, and author of The Lion and the Journalist: The Friendship of Theodore Roosevelt and Joseph Bucklin Bishop, which was a New York Times bestseller in March 2014 as an e-book.
