Jack Kelly - Heaven's Ditch: God, Gold and Murder on the Erie Canal (9-5 Saturday)
Heaven's Ditch: God, Gold, and Murder on the Erie Canal illuminates the building of the Erie Canal and the historic spiritual and political upheavals that erupted along its banks. The technological marvel of its age, the canal became the scene of one of the most striking outbursts of imagination in American history. Readers encounter America's very first “crime of the century,” wild treasure hunts, searing acts of violence, a visionary cross-dresser, and a panoply of fanatics, mystics, and hoaxers.
JACK KELLY is a journalist, novelist, and historian. He received the DAR's (Daughters of the American Revolution) History Award Medal for his book Band of Giants. He grew up in the Erie Canal region and now lives in New York's Hudson Valley.

Margaret Hubert - Customize Your Knitting: Adjust to Fit; Embellish to Taste (9-5 Saturday)
Personalize any knitting pattern for a perfect fit and style all your own, with expert help from Margaret Hubert!

Designers have to create knitting patterns in standard sizes, but very few people actually match up to those "average" measurements. Body shapes vary, weight fluctuates, and good fit means different things to different people; so what is a knitter to do?

Customize Your Knitting teaches you how to adjust standard patterns to fit your unique measurements. Through techniques that Margaret Hubert has used for years to teach classes on custom fitting, you can learn to adjust patterns for a perfect fit for yourself or someone else. Yarn shop instructors can use the book to teach classes for their customers.

Vernon Benjamin - The History of the Hudson River Valley From the Civil War to Modern Times (9-5 Saturday)
The History of the Hudson River Valley From the Civil War to Modern Times is the companion volume of Vernon Benjamin’s acclaimed history of the Hudson River Valley.  The two volumes, span from the post-Civil War period through the twentieth century, and into the present day. Vernon Benjamin’s magisterial first volume, The History of the Hudson River Valley: From Wilderness to the Civil War presented nearly 250 years of the Hudson River Valley’s dynamic past with unmatched richness and detail. Now, in the final volume, Benjamin completes his account of the region by taking readers from the post-Civil War period into the present day. Here we see the formation of the great estates of the Valley, including the Rockefellers, Sunnyside, and Olana, and how the turn of the twentieth century brought a new era of growth and prosperity to the region. A young Franklin Delano Roosevelt takes his first political steps in the New York senate during this time, and Thomas Dewey’s work as New York State governor morphed him into a viable candidate on the national political stage as well. In short, the twentieth-century Hudson River Valley was a hotbed of wealth, influence, and culture, a significant and vibrant scene of American development. By taking his narrative all the way into the post-September 11 present moment, Vernon Benjamin concludes his engaging, readable, and comprehensive history of one of America’s most significant and culturally important regions. Richly illustrated and meticulously researched, The History of the Hudson River Valley: From the Civil War to Modern Times will be the definitive text on the subject for years to come.

For key moments–such as joining an arm to a sweater or casting on additional rows–patterns are coded with “concentration zones” and “cruise control” segments for when you can go into a mindful state and let the knitting take a back seat.

Vernon Benjamin - History of the Hudson River Valley From the Civil War to the Modern Times (10-2:30 Sunday)
The History of the Hudson River Valley From the Civil War to Modern Times is the companion volume of Vernon Benjamin’s acclaimed history of the Hudson River Valley.  The two volumes, span from the post-Civil War period through the twentieth century, and into the present day. Vernon Benjamin’s magisterial first volume, The History of the Hudson River Valley: From Wilderness to the Civil War presented nearly 250 years of the Hudson River Valley’s dynamic past with unmatched richness and detail.

Now, in the final volume, Benjamin completes his account of the region by taking readers from the post-Civil War period into the present day. Here we see the formation of the great estates of the Valley, including the Rockefellers, Sunnyside, and Olana, and how the turn of the twentieth century brought a new era of growth and prosperity to the region. A young Franklin Delano Roosevelt takes his first political steps in the New York senate during this time, and Thomas Dewey’s work as New York State governor morphed him into a viable candidate on the national political stage as well. In short, the twentieth-century Hudson River Valley was a hotbed of wealth, influence, and culture, a significant and vibrant scene of American development. By taking his narrative all the way into the post-September 11 present moment, Vernon Benjamin concludes his engaging, readable, and comprehensive history of one of America’s most significant and culturally important regions. Richly illustrated and meticulously researched, The History of the Hudson River Valley: From the Civil War to Modern Times will be the definitive text on the subject for years to come.

Heather Ross - How to Catch A Frog : And Other Stories of Family, Love, Dysfunction, Survival and DIY (10-5 Sunday)
Much of Heather Ross's creative work has been inspired by her being born into an eccentric family of artists and idealists in a rural corner of Vermont during the 1970s. According to Heather, that environment was defined by stunning natural beauty, creative and innovative living, and daily lessons in self-reliance. It also included equal parts of general dysfunction, a self-imposed but nearly inescapable poverty, and little exposure to basic life skills.
When, as a twenty-something, Heather complained to her mother about a long list of things she had missed out on and that had compromised her chance of ever leading a normal life (immunizations, a healthy respect for authority), her mother waved a hand and replied, Well, you should thank me, because you have a lot of good stories instead. "How to Catch a Frog" is a collection of those stories, plus others that show Ross's eventual route to success as an artist, entrepreneur, and mother, all animated by Ross s delightful illustrations and how-to instructions.

Heaven's Ditch: God, Gold, and Murder on the Erie Canal illuminates the building of the Erie Canal and the historic spiritual and political upheavals that erupted along its banks. The technological marvel of its age, the canal became the scene of one of the most striking outbursts of imagination in American history. Readers encounter America's very first “crime of the century,” wild treasure hunts, searing acts of violence, a visionary cross-dresser, and a panoply of fanatics, mystics, and hoaxers.

Judith Durant - Cable Left, Cable Right: 94 Knitted Cables (12-5 Sunday)
Cable Left, Cable Right: 94 Knitted Cables
Knitted cables, with their three-dimensional twists and turns, are a common element in lots of patterns -- but most patterns don’t include directions for executing them. Cable Left, Cable Right, by expert knitter Judith Durant, eliminates the mystery with detailed, in-depth instructions for creating 94 different styles of cable, from perfectly plain to fantastically fancy. Close-up photos and clear instructions teach you the techniques you need, including design options like braids, diamonds, and pretzels so you can make your cables truly one-of-a-kind. This book is the perfect companion to any knitting pattern featuring cables, giving you the information and skills to make polished, beautiful, and unique cables for any project.
