The Time and the Valleys Museum have announced a virtual program, “In Further Retrospect,” with author and Sullivan County Historian, John Conway, set for Sunday, May 17th.
More than 30 years have passed since John Conway’s first “Retrospect” column about Sullivan County history appeared in the Times Herald-Record newspaper in July of 1987, and the column is still going strong, appearing on Friday’s in the Sullivan County Democrat since 2004.
Twice before, collections of these columns have been gathered together in book form. Retrospect: An Anecdotal History of Sullivan County, New York was published in 1996 and Remembering the Sullivan County Catskills in 2008. Now comes In Further Retrospect, the biggest collection yet.
Conway will talk about the evolution of the column and about the topics covered in his new book. The program presents vignettes of Sullivan County’s history from colonial times to the 21st century, including stories from virtually every corner of the County.
The event will begin at 2 pm. To attend, email the Museum at email@example.com to register, and you will receive a reply email invitation with information on how to log in to zoom.us for the talk.
For more information call (845) 985-7700, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the museum website.
