 Finger Lakes Memories (Images of America) Cover

Creekside to host Michael Leavy, author of Finger Lakes Memories on Saturday, August 18th at 1:00pm.

[Skaneateles, NY] Creekside Books & Coffee, an independent bookstore and coffeehouse in Skaneateles, is honored to be hosting author Michael Leavy on Saturday, August 18th at 1:00pm in the bookstore.  Mr. Leavy will be presenting and signing copies of his book, Finger Lakes Memories.

“We are really looking forward to learning more about Mr. Leavy’s book,” says Erika Davis, owner of Creekside Books & Coffee.  “Finger Lakes Memories includes spectacular photos that capture the historical significance and beauty of the Finger Lakes region which should make for a special presentation.”

About the Author

Michael Leavy, the author of eight books, brings to his writing a background of historical preservation, photography, lecturing, and Iroquois history. For Finger Lakes Memories, he received special permission to choose from the treasured Corby collection, which numbers in the thousands, as well as from other select sources. Corby took photographs of virtually everything because, in his heart, he felt so much in life was worth remembering. After seeing this book, no one will ever be able to explore the Finger Lakes region and see it in the same way again.

About Finger Lakes Memories

Finger Lakes Memories takes a long, mesmerizing look back at a land of 11 lakes, a land of monasteries and mansions, a U.S. president, abolitionists, women’s rights activists, Mark Twain, early aviation, and superb universities. Featuring the work of early-20th-century photographer George Bentley Corby, the book reflects the remarkable scenic beauty of the area before commercial and residential development. Poignant and often zestful photographs of farm labors, school chums, and small-town life emerge from a region where, like welcoming hands, the Finger Lakes beckon all to their safe solitudes, there to be inspired, comforted, educated, and encouraged. It is doubtful there is another book that so totally and vividly captures the everyday life of the era.

 “Mr. Leavy’s visit is sure to be a memorable event for many who have an interest in local history.  We look forward to his informative presentation and hope many join us,” says Davis.

Creekside Books & Coffee is located at 35 Fennell Street in Skaneateles.  The bookstore is the only retail store in the village selling new hardcover and paperback books as well as toys, gifts, greeting cards and other merchandise. The coffeehouse features the freshest roasted coffee in town, a light fare menu and a pleasant atmosphere to relax and enjoy.
