About the Book
Tales from Thurmons Corners is a fictional memoir. It is the story of Dave Lang, a man who returns to the small Midwestern community where he was born, in search of something he has lost in his life.

Revisiting various moments of his early life, he regains the simplicity of living life fully with innocence and enthusiasm and learns that placing value on time and life gained not lost, is a blessing that is renewed every day, with every breath we take.

Tales from Thurmons Corners celebrates the quiet strength, common sense and resilience of the people who inhabit the flatland prairie.

The Hudson Valley region is an area of rich culture, beautiful scenery, and haunted history. On Thursday, October 24th at 5:15pm, author Lisa LaMonica will discuss her latest book, Haunted Catskills, at the Library.

Be haunted by the ghost of Maggie Houghtaling, who still lingers in the Register-Star building where she was wrongfully hanged for the death of her child in 1817. Get goose bumps when you hear the tale of a Native American woman who drowned herself in Claverack Creek after she was forbidden to be with the man she loved. Feel fright when you hear the tale of Peter Hallenbeck, who was murdered by his nephews in Greenport.

Hear these tales and more from the author, who was nominated for Arts Artist of the Year award in 2001. LaMonica is currently at work on Halloween Stories of the Hudson Valley.

Copies of her book will be available for purchase and signing.
