“A WOMAN CONDEMNED: THE TRAGIC CASE OF ANNA ANTONIO”, BY JAMES GREINER
Presented by the author, a retired history teacher and Herkimer County Historian. A sensational murder, trial, and a young woman’s execution in Depression-era New York draws upon newly discovered NY State Police records. In Greiner’s description of the trial, he seeks to show how flaws in the judicial system, poverty, and prejudice around the Italian American community in Albany at the time, all played a part in Anna’s conviction and death sentence.

“GIANTS OF THE MONSOON FOREST: LIVING AND WORKING WITH ELEPHANTS”, BY JACOB SHELL
Reviewer: Phil Adams. For more than a thousand years, the people and elephants of Burma/Myanmar and India have worked with elephants to log otherwise impassable forests and to move people and goods (sometimes illicitly) under cover of the forest canopy. The relationship between elephant and rider is an intimate one that lasts for many decades. Though not bred to work with humans, these elephants can lift and carry logs, save people from mudslides, break logjams in raging rivers and navigate mountain forests with passengers.
