Can You Read “The Inscription in the Window”?

The Mystery Book Club is proud to host local author, Sylvie Briber, as she discusses her charming book, “The Inscription in the Window.” An etched inscription in a windowpane leads Sylvie on a magical trip through history as she discovers the stories of one of the most famous districts in the Capital District, the Stockade in Schenectady. A long-time editor of “The Stockade Spy,” her love and knowledge of the district shines through her talk. Join the Mystery Book Club on June 19 at 10:30 am at the Cohoes Public Library to share in her adventure. More information under “Book Club”
