The Matthewis Persen House Museum in Kingston, Ulster County, NY, will host Stephen Blauweiss of Blauweiss Media on Saturdays, July 30th, August 6th, and August 13th, for a talk on their new book The Story of Historic Kingston.
With a background in filmmaking, graphic design, historical research, and writing, Stephen Blauweiss and Karen Berelowitz’s second book combines a visual presentation with concise and informative text about the vibrant 400-year history of the Mid-Hudson Valley region. The full-color, hardcover book features 950 photographs, postcards, maps, art, and graphics, many never before published, and all professionally restored.
After four years of research using a variety of public and private archives, books, publications, and personal interviews, the 500-page book covers hundreds of topics. Stop by the Persen House July 30, August 6 and August 13 from 11am-2pm each day to view this informative new book and chat with co-author Stephen Blauweiss.
This program is free and open to the public. The museum is located at 74 John Street in uptown Kingston, at the historic intersection of John and Crown Streets. For more information, contact County Clerk Nina Postupack at (845) 340-3040 or email@example.com, or visit the Blauweiss Media website.
