CSF director Samuel Schmitt will present an Author Talk on his new book Silvermine tonight, April 26, 2017, at 7 pm. Sponsored by the independent bookstore Books on the Common, the event will take place in the Main Program Room at the Ridgefield Public Library, 472 Main Street in Ridgefield, Connecticut.
Through dozens of historic photographs Silvermine tells the story of the bucolic hamlet Carl Schmitt called home for over 70 years. The book recounts how the picturesque valley, once buzzing with sawmills, was transformed into a cultural hub with the coming of the artists, including Carl Schmitt, who formed the Silvermine Guild in 1922. It’s part of the well-known “Images of America” series from Arcadia Publishing. See a preview and order here from Amazon.com. Your purchase benefits the Carl Schmitt Foundation.
