Read & Go Book Club on the Road Again

Read & Go to…Seneca Falls!

The William B. Ogden Library is preparing for another Read & Go Book Club excursion: this time, to Central New York’s Seneca Falls, the site of the first Women’s Rights Convention in 1848 (and incidentally, the town also “widely believed to be the inspiration for Frank Capra’s holiday classic It’s a Wonderful Life.”) The Seneca Falls Heritage Area encompasses the Women’s Rights National Historic Park and the National Women’s Hall of Fame, and the Club will be escorted and educated by guides at both sites.

The bus trip is planned for Friday, September 29, and will leave from the library in Walton that morning and return that evening. A buffet luncheon between historic sites will be at the Gould Hotel in Seneca Falls. The cost of the trip, including buffet lunch, is $70, payable in advance.

The Book Club meeting prior to the bus tour will be on Thursday, September 21 at 6:30pm at the library, by which time “members,” (AKA “people planning to go on the bus trip”) are to have read the book of their choice on a theme having to do in some way with the trip. For more information, call the library at 607-865-5929.
