Brown Bag Book Club

Our next meeting will be on  Wednesday, October 13th, 2021 at 11:30AM.

This month’s book is:  Murder in the Adirondacks by Craig Brandon

“It’s been over one hundred years since a search party found Grace Brown’s body in the bottom of Big Moose Lake in the western Adirondacks. The murder trial in Herkimer of her boyfriend, Chester Gillette, made the front page in newspapers around the country and inspired Theodor Dreiser’s weighty novel, An American Tragedy. In 1986 Craig Brandon wrote a history of this famous pair and now his new edition of Murder in the Adirondacks contains more photos and facts.” – North Country Books

A special guest  from the Cortland Historical Society will be on hand to discuss Cortland’s major role during the events described.
