County Historian to Lead Book Discussion

Thursday, April 22, 2010
The Tompkins County Public Library will host County Historian Carol Kammen for a discussion of her latest book, "Tompkins County, New York, Images of Work and Play," tonight, April 22 from 5:00 to 6:00 PM in the BorgWarner Community Room.

Kammen, a former senior lecturer at Cornell University and longtime historian, will be joined by colleagues who contributed to the book for a slideshow and discussion about the book writing experience.

"Images of Work and Play" chronicles the everyday life of Tompkins County residents through a collection of candidly charming photographs. Gathered from organizations, public collections and personal albums, the photos selected showcase moments of activity, industry, human connection and raw emotion and bring life to the County's long forgotten history.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Carrie Wheeler-Carmenatty at (607) 272-4557 extension 248, or visit .
