2017 Spring Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series


12:00 PM — May 2017 Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series: The Burning of The Piping Rock: The True Story Behind the Novel


Speaker:  Joe Cutshall-King

The historical mystery novel The Burning of The Piping Rock is based on the still unsolved arson of Piping Rock Casino in Saratoga Springs in 1954. Author Joseph Cutshall-King has woven real people and events into a fictional “solution” of this crime.  But what is the truth behind it all?  What’s fiction?  What’s real?  Cutshall-King will discuss the actual people, including his own family, and events of the Saratoga Springs of 1954 that drove his writing this novel.

This FREE event takes place on Thursday, May 11, 2017 from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM in the H. Dutcher Community Room, Saratoga Springs Public Library, 49 Henry Street, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
