Books and more for our community

Clyde Watson presents
Aldren A. Watson's Waterfront New York
Tuesday, August 22, 6:30 p.m.
Clyde Watson (editor) will share her father’s beautiful and historically rich collection of watercolors, based on 1920s and 1930s photographs taken by his own father and depicting the part of the city he loved―the waterfront and harbor of lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. This book of 45 watercolor paintings and 5 maps depicts the thriving port city of New York in the early 1900s, rendered from the unique vantage point of an artist born and raised in Brooklyn. Paintings are accompanied by informative text and evocative recollections drawn from the artist’s notebooks and reflecting everyday life of the time. Ms. Watson will read selections from the book and share photographs, sketches, and notes to illustrate some of the background in its creation.
