LUNCH WITH BOOKS: "How the Other Half Lived," with Judi Hendrickson and Jeanne Finstein

December 12, 2017

Event starts at 12:00 PM.

December 12, 2017, at noon

During the country’s “Gilded Age,” many of the very wealthy built summer homes along the Hudson River in upstate New York or “cottages” in Newport, Rhode Island. A few had houses in both places. Judi Hendrickson and Jeanne Finstein visited both areas and will share some of the interesting stories that surround these homes and their owners, including Samuel F.B. Morse, inventor of the code that bears his name, and his magnificent 1851 Italianate villa in Poughkeepsie, NY, ‘Locust Grove.’ Come to Lunch With Books at the Ohio County Public Library, Tuesday, December 12 at noon and find out “how the other half lived.”
