An upcoming talk on Albany Rural Cemetery will be held on April 24, 2014 at the William K. Sanford Town Library; located at 629 Albany-Shaker Road, Loudonville, NY. Below are the details from the library's monthly newsletter, At the Library.
Paul Grondahl, an author and award-winning report at the Times Union, will speak about These Exalted Acres: Unlocking the Secrets of Albany Rural Cemetery on Thursday, April 24th at our Noon Author Talk. The book includes historic photographs and 50 biographies of notable people buried at Albany Rural Cemetery. Grondahl wrote the book and it was published in December, 2013 by the Times Union. (When we went over to the TU to purchase copies for the library last December, the line went out the door! So here's your chance to get a copy if you couldn't last December.) All proceeds benefit the Times Union Hope Fund, a not-for-profit organization run by volunteers at the paper that sends underprivileged and at-risk children to after-school programs and summer camps. The hardcover illustrated book costs $25. Paul's talk will be followed by a book signing. The talk starts at 12:15 PM; bring your lunch if you are on lunch hour.
