  • Overview

    Author Sylvie Briber will give a talk and read from her book, "The Inscription in the Window", a fascinating story about the discovery of an inscription, in very tiny lettering, etched into their front parlor window of their home in the Stockade section of Schenectady. A Grace T. Watkins inscribed her name there with the date of April 22, 1883. With the help of the Schenectady County Historical Society, Sylvie started researching and uncovered so many coincidences about Grace, her house and her Stockade neighbors, that she didn't need the help of fiction! Please join us on Sunday, March 4, 2018 at 2:00 pm to hear Sylvie's unfolding stories as she tries to solve the mystery of the inscription in the window.
