The Whallonsburg Grange Lyceum welcomes Glenn Pearsall on Tuesday, February 18 at 7:30pm.
Pearsall is a well-known Adirondack historian whose research focuses on the cultural heritage of the area. His talk, “Setting the Wild: When Men and Mountains Meet” will present stories of the many attempts to settle and industrialize the Adirondacks after America gained independence. While the region became a land of opportunity for businessmen and land speculators, each enterprise began with great optimism, and most ended in despair and human tragedy. His newest book, When Men and Mountains Meet: Stories of Hope and Despair, will be on sale at the talk.
This presentation is part of the Lyceum winter series, “Our Wild Home: Six talks on the history and place of the Adirondacks.” Donation: $5, students free.
