On Tuesday, November 1 at 7:30pm, the Whallonsburg Grange Hall will present “Essex County’s Immigrants: Names, Places and Stories” with independent scholar and writer, Amy Godine. This is the sixth and final lecture in the fall Lyceum series entitled “Living on This Land.”
Through anecdotes and stories, Godine will track the surprisingly robust, endlessly surprising legacy of ethnic and racial diversity in Essex County from the first days of European discovery to the present time.
Godine, a longtime contributor to Adirondack Life, is a Charter Fellow of the New York Academy of History, a recipient of a Larry Hackman New York Archives Research Fellowship, and a frequent speaker on Adirondack ethnic, labor, and black history. She has curated several museum exhibitions on ethnic enclaves in the region, including the traveling exhibit, “Dreaming of Timbuctoo,” now at the John Brown Farm in North Elba. With Elizabeth Folwell, she co-authored Adirondack Odysseys, a guide to historic sites inside the Blue Line.
