Best-selling author Elizabeth Rosner's Electric City: A Novel, is now available in paper-back. The historical tale spans from the end of the nineteenth century, through to the mid-twenties, up to the summer of love. The year is 1892; a few years earlier Thomas Edison moved his Edison Machine Works to upstate New York at the confluence of the mighty Hudson River and its tributary the Mohawk. It soon became the headquarters of a major manufacturing company giving the town its name Electric City. Elizabeth Rosner will be in our region to talk about her book in an event Tuesday, November 10th, for the Women's Club of Albany. 

Julian Fellowes, creator of the PBS smash Downton Abbey, received the 2012 Edith Wharton Lifetime Achievement Award in Boston on Saturday. But, he extended his first trip to the Bay State by one day to have time to visit The Mount in Lenox. We met up with him there and spoke with him about Wharton and his work.
