Lorna Czarnota signing Native American & Pioneer Sites of Upstate New York

Lorna Czarnota signing
Native American & Pioneer Sites ofUpstate New York;
Westward Trails from Albany to Buffalo
.

This new book on New York State's role in westward expansion includes an entire chapter on Schenectady.

Lorna Czarnota is an award winning storyteller who loves to visit historical sites. Her writing is included in several anthologies and magazine.

Overview
Prior to the Revolutionary War, everything west of Albany was wilderness. Safer travel and the promise of land opened this frontier. The interaction between European settlers and Native Americans transformed New York, and the paths they walked still bear the footprints of their experiences, like the shrine to Kateri Tekakwitha in Fonda. Industry and invention flourished along these routes, as peace sparked imagination, allowing for art and the freedom to explore new ideologies, some inspired by Native American culture. The Latter Rain Movement took hold in the heart of the Burned-Over District. Utopian communities and playgrounds for the wealthy appeared and vanished; all that remains of the Oneida Community is its Mansion House. Follow New York’s westward trails—the Erie Canal and Routes 5 and 20—that opened the west to the United States, beginning in Albany and moving westward to Buffalo.

Kristin Kimball Talk and Signing The Dirty Life

Kristin Kimball, author of The Dirty Life, will speak and sign books at the SCCC.

This event is a fundraiser for SCPL (a ticket is required).
This event part of the One County One Book program.
Full details are available at SCPL.org.

"This book is the story of the two love affairs that interrupted the trajectory of my life: one with farming—that dirty, concupiscent art—and the other with a complicated and exasperating farmer."

Single, thirtysomething, working as a writer in New York City, Kristin Kimball was living life as an adventure. But she was beginning to feel a sense of longing for a family and for home. When she interviewed a dynamic young farmer, her world changed. Kristin knew nothing about growing vegetables, let alone raising pigs and cattle and driving horses. But on an impulse, smitten, if not yet in love, she shed her city self and moved to five hundred acres near Lake Champlain to start a new farm with him. The Dirty Life is the captivating chronicle of their first year on Essex Farm, from the cold North Country winter through the following harvest season—complete with their wedding in the loft of the barn.

Paul Castellani Signing Sputnik Summer

Paul Castellani will sign his book Sputnik Summer.

Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, this novel reveals how a teenager’s testimony about a homicide rips apart an Adirondack resort town.

It's only a month into the summer of 1958, and 17-year-old Kevin Boyle is already in trouble with an older girl. And a priest who's zeroing in on Communists and degenerate books in the library is way too interested in his sex life. When he thinks nothing else can go wrong, he sees his best friend's brother shove a tourist to his death at a lakeside hangout. Or did he? By the time the coroner's inquest comes around, half the town thinks he's caused the drop in tourism. The other half think he's mixed up with the suspect librarian, and his friends are sure he's sold out to the lawyer who's dangling a college scholarship and loan to his financially-strapped parents for the right testimony. Whatever Kevin says at the inquest will change his life.
