Historical Society of Woodstock is set to offer a conference focusing on the life of historian Alf Evers, on Thursday, February 18th.
The presentation will feature an interview with noted author, poet and composer Ed Sanders to discuss his recently completed biography on the life and work of Evers, Alf Evers: An American Genius.
Evers, whose major works included: The Catskills: From Wilderness to Woodstock, Woodstock: History of an American Town and Kingston: City on the Hudson, has been recognized as one of the prominent regional historians.
Sanders, who will be interviewed by Woodstock Town Historian Richard Heppner, worked closely with Evers during the latter part of his life and, in Alf Evers: An American Genius, has offered a detailed study on the evolution of a historian’s life.
In addition to his preeminent works, Evers served as the first Woodstock Town Historian and led the Historical Society of Woodstock as its president for a number of years.
This event will begin at 7 pm, is free and open to the public, and will be held via Zoom. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org, put “Alf Evers” in the subject line. For more information, contact Richard Heppner, Woodstock Town Historian, at email@example.com.
