CANTON – An Adirondack author will discuss "Turning Points in Adirondack History" at the Thursday, Sept. 16 noontime brown bag lunch at the St. Lawrence County Historical Association Silas Wright House, 3 East Main St., Canton.

This free program will be given by Andy Flynn, author of the popular Adirondack Attic book series.

Flynn will focus on four major turning points in the history of the Adirondacks: the American Revolution and lead up events to the revolution such as the French and Indian War; the creation of the Adirondack Park by New York State in 1892; World War II; and the formation of the Adirondack Park Agency in 1971.

Each of these turning points had an effect on the people who lived in and around the area that became the Adirondack Park.

Flynn is an author and publisher living in Saranac Lake. He currently operates Hungry Bear Publishing with his wife, Dawn, publishing the Adirondack Attic book series and the Meet the Town community guides.
