Miles J. Unger, journalist for The Economist magazine and The New York Times, discusses his latest book, Picasso and the Painting That Shocked the World. The book tells the story of an obscure young painter from Barcelona who came to Paris and made himself into one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. Publisher’s Weekly called the book, “riveting…This engrossing book chronicles with precision and enthusiasm a painting with lasting impact in today’s art world.”
On behalf of the Hudson Library & Historical Society’s Board of Trustees and Staff, we would like to thank the community for the overwhelming outpouring of support during this challenging time. It will take considerable time and effort to assess damage, initiate repairs, and restore the Library to its former condition — particularly in the following areas: Children’s Library, Rotunda, and children’s resources. We will continue to keep you apprised of our progress and we appreciate your patience and support!
In response to numerous inquiries from those in the community seeking to help, we have put together a short list of ways to support the Library.
• DONATE: Charitable donations of any amount are welcome. (By way of example on how your donation can help: A donation of $20 will allow us to purchase 4 board books for the children’s collection, and $100 will allow us to purchase 5 juvenile fiction titles.) Donations can be made online, by cash or credit card at the Circulation desk, or by personal check either in person at the Circulation Desk or by mail.
• CHECK OUT MATERIALS in person as well as by using digital methods/apps including Overdrive, BookMyne, Hoopla, Flipster, Zinio and others. The level of our circulation is an important factor in our state funding formula. Visit us often!
