hudsonimagesofamericaLocal author, Lisa LaMonica, will sign copies of her latest book, Hudson, on Sunday, December 21 at 1pm at Spotty Dog Books & Ale, 440 Warren Street, Hudson. All proceeds from the book signing will benefit the Library’s History Room.

The book is part of the Images of America series which chronicles the history of small towns and downtowns across the country. Each title features more than 200 vintage images, capturing often forgotten bygone times and bringing to life the people, places, and events that defined a community.

Book Description: Hudson, with its scarlet past, is still intriguing in many ways. It is the new go-to destination being discovered by tourists, chefs, world-famous artists and celebrities, motion pictures, and major magazines. Visitors say there is a palpable vibe of creative energy. Home to the largest number of self-employed people in New York, Hudson is a unique city where one can start their own business and not feel out of place. In vintage photographs, Hudson covers a rich history that includes the story of the Mohicans, whaling, and the multitude of factories in the Industrial Age, as well as the city’s modern-day transformation.
