Well before the Internet, people turned to the newspaper society columns to learn about what was really going on in town. The journalists who penned these columns wrote about the intersection of politics, diplomacy, and society. Join us as local author/journalist Joseph Dalton reads from and talks about his book, Washington’s Golden Age : Hope Ridings Miller, the society beat, and the rise of women journalists, a biography of Dalton’s cousin Hope Ridings Miller, a pioneering journalist who covered the lively social scene during the New Deal and World War II. A fitting tribute during Women’s History Month! The author will sign and sell copies of his book following the talk. The location is in the  Helderberg (Large) Meeting Room, at the Guilderland Library.
