Grange Lyceum: Boats and Boating in the Adirondacks with Hallie Bon

March 18, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Our Wild Home: Six talks on the history and place of the Adirondacks

Lyceums flourished in the United States from the mid-19th century and were important in the development of adult education. Lecturers, musicians, singers and readers traveled the “lyceum circuit,” going from town to town to entertain, speak, or debate. The current Lyceum Series at the Grange continues this tradition with lectures and programs of interest to the community. (Whallonsburg Grange)

Wild Waters: Boats and Boating in the Adirondacks with Hallie Bond, author and former Adirondack Museum curator 

Ever since Ralph Waldo Emerson took a trip through the Adirondacks in a small boat, millions of Americans have seen an Adirondack vacation as the antidote to the stress and pollution of industrialized society. This illustrated lecture explores boatshops, liveries, and a way of life and leisure that has all but vanished.

(This lecture is free, sponsored by the NY Council for the Humanities, Speakers in the Humanities program)
