NARROWSBURG, NY — A special event, “Love Letters of The Upper Delaware,” created by the Tusten Historical Society and Western Sullivan Public Library, will be held at the Tusten-Cochecton library on Friday, February 15 from 7 to 8 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
Presenters will read letters that celebrate a slower pace, and the luxury, passion and determination of the handwritten word. Among those reading will be Grace Johansen, Penelope Morgan-Lohr and John Roth, bringing the voices of long-silent local lovers to life. The library invites attendees to share short excerpts from their own letters or sweet artifacts from their families’ previous generations.
If you have any historical love letters you’d like to share, email firstname.lastname@example.org , or call 845/252-3360.
