Jack Casey returns to CDIAA to discusses his novel, A Land beyond the River. The history of the Erie Canal comes alive in the story of DeWitt Clinton, Eleanora Livingston Van Rensselaer, and Daniel Hedges who overcame the obstacles of mountains, war, and politics to succeed in building the canal that opened America’s western expansion. 

The story of the Erie Canal is intertwined with the story of the Irish immigrants who helped build it. Mr. Casey’s presentations are always entertaining and informative. Admission $8 includes refreshments For more information contact John Carswell 478-9394 or 330-5276
