The plush interior of the Beekman Arms Hotel in Rhinebeck will serve as the setting for this holiday book signing on November 5, from 1 to 4pm, a rare convergence of top local authors including Jon Bowermaster, Nava Atlas, and Vern Benjamin. These Hudson Valley literary icons will be joined by other important authors like Leslie Sharpe (The Quarry Fox: And Other Critters of the Wild Catskills), Stephen Silverman (The Catskills: Its History and How It Changed America), and Brooke Kroeger (The Suffragents). As the holidays approach, so too does the daunting task of gift selection. Enjoy courtesy desserts and drinks while you meet the authors and kick off your seasonal shopping. The curated book selection has a strong focus on ecology and local history to delight the bibliophiles in your life. Beekmandelamaterinn.com
