Seneca Falls, NY – The public is invited to attend a talk and book signing by journalist and author Fergus Bordewich. This event will be held at the Women’s Rights National Historical Park visitor center, 136 Fall Street in Seneca Falls, starting at 2:00 pm on Saturday, July 28th.
Bordewich is the author of several well received books including; “Killing the White Man’s Indian: Reinventing Native Americans at the End of the Twentieth Century”; "My Mother’s Ghost, a memoir”; and “Cathay: A Journey in Search of Old China.” His most recent book is the critically acclaimed story of the Underground Railroad, “Bound for Canaan.” Bordewich has also written articles that have appeared in Smithsonian and American Heritage. His work as a journalist has taken him throughout Asia, the Middle East, and Europe, and provided him the opportunity to write on human rights and other issues for The New York Times, Atlantic Monthly, Harper’s, Readers Digest, and other periodicals.
The talk will be presented in the visitor center auditorium with a question & answer session afterward. Seating is limited, so please come early.
Immediately following the talk a book signing will take place in the visitor center lobby featuring “Bound for Canaan”, which is available in the visitor center’s bookstore. The talk and book signing will be hosted by Eastern National in cooperation with the National Park Service. Entrance to the Women’s Rights National Historical Park visitor center is free of charge.
