Books And Beer At The Greenwich Free Library

    

  Beer scholars Craig Gravina and Alan McLeod explore the sudsy story of Upper Hudson Valley beer in their new book, Hudson Valley Beer. The Upper Hudson Valley has a long and full-bodied brewing tradition. Arriving in the 1600s, the Dutch established the area as a brewing center, a trend that continued well into the eighteenth century despite two devastating wars.

Since the 1980s, there has been a renaissance in Upper Hudson Valley craft brewing, including Newman’s, C.H. Evans, Shmaltz and Chatham Brewing.

On Friday night, The Greenwich Free Library will host “Books and Beer,” an author talk and event with another part of that renaissance - the Argyle Brewing Company. The event is at 5PM with beers from the Argyle Brewing Company being served from till 9PM. At 7PM, author Craig Gravina will discuss the book “Upper Hudson Valley Beer.”

'This Changes Everything: Capitalism Vs. The Climate' By Naomi Klein

    In This Changes EverythingNaomi Klein argues that climate change isn’t just another issue to be neatly filed between taxes and health care. It’s an alarm that calls us to fix an economic system that is already failing us in many ways. Klein meticulously builds the case for how massively reducing our greenhouse emissions is our best chance to simultaneously reduce gaping inequalities, re-imagine our broken democracies, and rebuild our gutted local economies.

Dear Wally…

  Ask Wally Nichols what he does for a living and he may say: Musician, Writer, Radio DJ, Cartoonist or Farmer. Today he is answering author, because of his new book: Dear Wally: A Collection of Snarky Advice Columns & Opinionated Essays – pieces from The Blue Stone Press.

Wally Nichols is an advice columnist the regional upstate paper. It's not exactly advice though- at least not in the 'Dear Abbey' sense. This is up on a soap box/ bully pulpit material that is sometimes salty, sometimes very funny, sometimes clever, sometimes humble, sometimes appreciative, sometimes observant. The book is a collection of the best fifty over a three-year span.

'Striking Gridiron' By Greg Nichols

  In the summer of 1959, most of the town of Braddock, Pennsylvania---along with half a million steel workers around the country---went on strike in the longest labor stoppage in American history. With no paychecks coming in, the families of Braddock looked to its football team for inspiration.

Author and journalist Greg Nichols writes about it in his book, Striking Gridiron: A Town's Pride and a Team's Shot at Glory During the Biggest Strike in American History.
