    Contact:    518-388-4511   
   

Presented by David Brooks

The Erie Canal transported cargo, people and ideas.  It was the ingenuity of the people that made an idea that was “Little Short of Madness” into the success that it became.
 
This program is meant to provide relatable information about the Erie Canal from conception to construction and the various improvements to the waterway over the last two hundred years.  During this program, topics ranging from politics, economics and social factors to the environmental views in early America will be broached.  The presentation is intended to give an overall view of the deep rich history of the Erie Canal and its importance to not only New York State but America.

Workshops are taking place on October 19, 26, and November 2.  Please register at entry under October 19.

Authors Among Us

Facilitated by Paul Lamar

Robert Frost said, “Writing free verse is like playing tennis with the net down.” In this workshop the net will be up! Fixed forms are poems that are written in a prescribed fashion. We’re familiar with sonnets and Haiku. But have you heard of ghazals, triolets, villanelles, limericks, pantoums, and pleiades? We’ll explore some of these forms and compose our own pieces. Novice to seasoned writers are welcome. For those age 18 and up.

This program series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Sponsored by the Mohawk Valley Library System and participating member libraries. Participating libraries are accessible for people with disabilities.
