Via Zoom.

Through its long and varied history, Westchester has been home to a great many prominent authors. Its natural beauty and stimulating topography, towns with unique characteristics, and proximity to Manhattan have all contributed to its allure for writers. Beginning with Washington Irving and James Fenimore Cooper, and continuing through the centuries to current novelists, this digital slide presentation focuses on several leading authors who used their real Westchester communities as inspiration in their fictional stories.

It will be presented by Barbara Davis, Co-Director of the Westchester County Historical Society, in collaboration with the Lewisboro, Warner, Yonkers and Irvington libraries. Please register for your Zoom link HERE.
