Russell Shorto, author of the wonderful “Island at the Center of the World” a history of the Dutch in New Amsterdam, is speaking at the Cole Auditorium tomorrow night at 7:30 PM [corrected from 8 – doors open at 7] . Admission is free but you must call the Hysterical Society at (203) 869-6899 for reservations. Now that I have reserved two seats, I’m passing on the word.
