History of Saratoga to Benefit Community

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Now that the city of Saratoga Springs has reached its 100th year, there is a book that puts those years in a clear perspective. With 27 authors and 31 chapters, “Saratoga Springs: A Centennial History” is now available at Northshire Bookstore. On August 11, Northshire is hosting a discussion and book signing that will include Field Horne, the editor, and several authors including Phyllis Aldrich, Kirsten Ferguson, Mary Ann Fitzgerald, Amy Godine and Lance Ingmeyer.

“The book is selling briskly and I know people are excited about it,” said Rachel Person, Northshire Bookstore’s event coordinator. “This is a great community-spirited project with a definitive look at our town’s history.”

At over 400 pages, “Saratoga Springs: A Centennial History” is the first complete history of Saratoga Springs compiled into a single volume. What is also impressive is that the authors wrote it as volunteers. All funds raised by the book benefit the Saratoga Springs History Museum, the History Room at the Saratoga Springs Public Library and the New York State Military Museum in order to procure more historical displays and exhibits from Saratoga’s past. The book is currently on sale at Northshire Bookstore for $49.95.

 

The book talk and signing will begin at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, August 11 and is a free event that is open to the public. The Northshire Bookstore is located at 424 Broadway in Saratoga Springs. For more information, visit northshire.com.
