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.”
The Hudson Library will host its seventh annual “Pitch Night” on Tuesday, November 19 at 6:30 p.m. Eight finalists have been selected from the pool of online applications to pitch their business ideas to a panel of expert judges in front of an audience.
A $5,000 cash prize will be awarded to the first place winner, and two runners-up will each receive a $2,500 cash prize. The first place winner will also receive a prize package including a logo development session with Akhia Communications, a legal consultation courtesy of Cardinal Law LLC and an accounting/tax consultation courtesy of Rea & Associates. The public is welcome to participate as a member of the audience and watch the competition. No registration is required for audience members.
