Book Launch Party!
Saturday, July 20th at 7 pm
Join us to celebrate the release of Hidden History of the Finger Lakes by local author Patti Unvericht! Patti will give a talk about her new book and be available to sign copies. It’s not a launch party without special treats so we will be sampling some local wine* and will have those amazing mini cupcakes from Frosted Fairy Cupcakery.
Want to know more about the book? Here is the official blurb: New York’s Finger Lakes region is filled with compelling characters, tragic disasters and fascinating mysteries. Famed daredevil Sam Patch, known as the “Yankee Leaper,” thrilled audiences at Niagara Falls but took his last jump into the Genesee River with his pet black bear, plummeting to his death. The first ever Memorial Day was celebrated in Waterloo in 1866 and inspired a nation to adopt the holiday. Seneca Lake claims its fair share of ships, including the Onondaga, which was blown up with dynamite as part of a spectacle to commemorate the sinking of the USS Maine. Author Patti Unvericht reveals the forgotten history of the Finger Lakes region.
*All ages are welcome to this event and we will have non-alcoholic beverages available as well. You must be 21+ to sample wine
