Join us for our 40th Annual Meeting!
Historic Saranac Lake members, and those wishing to become members, are invited to join us by zoom for our Annual Meeting on October 29 at 5:00PM. Christopher Shaw will lead a discussion about his new book, The Power Line. To register for the meeting, click the button below!
About The Power Line: The Power Line veers from the villages of Lake Aurora and Saranac Lake in the years following World War I, when Prohibition and tuberculosis kept them hopping, to Montreal and a thrilling escape by canoe across the St. Lawrence River in the dead of winter. It follows the adventures of Fran Germaine, rustic builder and old-time fiddle player, and his friend Lonnie Monroe, the source for the tapes and transcriptions made in the eighties about their days working together as bootleggers for Legs Diamond.
Christopher Shaw has been a writer, editor, and teacher for forty years. His fiction, memoir, journalism, essays, and book length non-fiction have focused largely but not exclusively on aspects of place and its influence on character and ideas, most often having to do with the Adirondack region of northern New York.
