The Hudson Library & Historical Society will host a live virtual streaming event with author Eric Jay Dolin as he discusses his most recent book, A Furious Sky: The Five Hundred Year History of America’s Hurricanes. Dolin presents the five-hundred-year story of American hurricanes, from the nameless storms that threatened Columbus’ New World voyages, to the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the escalation of hurricane season as a result of global warming. Historian H. W. Brands calls the book, "a riveting mix of natural science, institutional history and human experience. All in a great read.”
