Join us for an evening with the authors of Western New York and the Gilded Age as part of our popular Carrousel Chat lecture series. Experience a time of “discovery, prosperity, growth, and fellowship” as historians Julianna Fiddler-Woite, Mary Beth Paulin Scumaci, and Peter C. Scumaci illuminate everyday life at the turn of the 20th Century. Look beyond the headlines to see human faces in familiar places. From postcards, letters, photographs, and private scrapbooks, see how the public spent their leisure hours in an era of burgeoning wealth and privilege.
