Erik Schlimmer, author of 6 other books on NYS history, discusses his book "Cradle of the Union: A Street by Street History of New York’s Capital City," which historically decodes all 785 street names in the city of Albany. "Dipping into this book is like opening a bag of potato chips. You're not going to be able to read just one entry," according to The Times Union.
The Friends of Albany Public Library host regular book reviews, author talks, and special presentations every Tuesday at 12:15 pm at the Washington Ave. Branch. (https://albanypubliclibrary.libcal.com/event/4809324)
