    Marisa Hayes will present some of her research on headstone design in the Hudson Valley historic cemeteries.  Her studies have focused on headstone styles from the colonial period through the Civil War. Headstones reflect the social identities and views of death held by historical peoples of the Hudson Valley. We can compare the designs to the gravestone studies of James Deetz in New England, and discover patterns that reveal culture, language, and heritage of the people who are buried in our region's oldest cemeteries. Ms. Hayes has recently completed her studies in history at SUNY Albany.

    Read or listen to the novel Washington Square by Henry James.  The E-Book and Audiobook is available on HOOPLA.  For Kindle owners, it’s free with Kindle Unlimited or go to m.gutenberg.org  to download a copy. One of James’ most intriguing books, it is a story full of romance and emotion, but also deals with serious issues of loyalty, faith, and pain.  

     

    The story is set in the Washingto n Square section of Manhattan, circa 1850:  Dr. Austin Sloper, a wealthy and highly successful physician, lives with his only child, Catherine, a sweet-natured young woman who is a great disappointment to her father, being physically plain and, he believes, dull in terms of personality and intellect. The plot of the novel is based upon a true story told to James by his close friend, Fanny Kemble.
