Tuesday, November 10
1-3 PM

Author Russell Shorto is known for his incisive, deeply felt historical writing, on vivid display in books like AmsterdamRevolution Song, and his beloved bestseller The Island at the Center of the World, as well as his in-depth features for the New York Times Magazine.

Shorto’s June 2019 NY Times article “In the Hudson Valley: A Drive Back in Time” renewed public tourism interest in Dutch colonial history.

New York’s Dutch roots give the state’s history a unique grounding, and they offer historic sites great potential for building tourism and economic development. Mr. Shorto and tourism industry partners will join us in brainstorming ideas on how historic sites can create new experiences centered around Dutch Colonial history. 

When you register, you will be given access to a dedicated MANY page where we invite you to share resources and content in advance of the live discussion on November 10. You can include digital files of collection items and interpretive materials like maps, photographs, documents, brochures, website links, articles, program promotions, and links to video.
