  • Author Gloria Waldron Hukle cover of 'Souls of the Soil'Tuesday, October 11: Local author and member Gloria Waldron Hukle will debut her 4th historical novel! Souls of the Soil takes place in New York’s Rensselaer, Albany and Saratoga Counties. The novel spans centuries following the lives of two sets of American fathers and their sons—all four of whom share the same DNA. The story was inspired by an actual murder in New York in the year 1756 and driven by the discovery of a small family cemetery plot hundreds of years later. This is the fourth and final of Hukle’s American Waldron Series novels. Note that a portion of the proceeds from sales of the book will go to benefit two local families. Books are $20.00 each (tax included); all are signed and Gloria will be happy to personalize!
  • Saturday-Sunday, October 15-16 (rain dates 10/22-23): Amazing Graves; Ghosts of Sand Lake. (SLHS is proud to co-sponsor this event!)
  • Tuesday, November 1 (please note change from our usual 2nd Tuesday): Jack Casey will talk about Alexander Hamilton. Mr. Casey has published four novels about New York State, three historical and one political satire. He began a novel about Hamilton in 1982 and was so enamored with Hamilton’s legal and political career that he put the novel aside to enroll in law school himself. Graduating with honors from both Yale University ('72) and Albany Law School ('87), Jack has practiced law in the Capital District for 28 years while also serving in governmental and political positions in both Rensselaer County and the New York State Capitol. As he sought to bring his Hamilton project out, the Broadway musical hit. Jack and his partner Victoria Wright attended Hamilton (An American Musical) the same day as Barack Obama; with renewed interest in Hamilton's life, Jack has edited his manuscript to embrace only the final two and a half years of Hamilton's life, focusing on the inexplicable tragedy of his death.
