Sunday Author Series celebrates with author Susan Fox Rogers, the launch of her book My Reach: A Hudson River Memoir, with a reception & book talk on Sunday, Oct, 16th at 4pm at Beacon Institute's Gallery at 199 Main Street in Beacon, NY. 

Susan Fox Rogers,

Described as part outdoor adventure and an account of both a natural and unnatural history, My Reach: A Hudson River Memoir is an account of the author's intimate experience of the Hudson River and its shores from a fresh persepctive: the seat of her kayak.

Low in the water, Rogers explores the bays and the larger estuary, riding the tides, marveling over sturgeons and eels, eagles and herons, and spotting the remains of the ice and cement industries. After years of dipping her paddle into the waters off the village of Tivoli, she came to know the rocks and tree limbs, currents and eddies, mansions and islands so well that she claimed that section of the river as her own: her reach. Woven into Rogers’s intimate exploration of the river is the story of her life as a woman in the outdoors—rock climbing and hiking as well as kayaking.
