Mac Griswold Speaks, Alfresco

At Sylvester Manor on Shelter Island

   Mac Griswold will speak about “The Manor” at the site itself, Sylvester Manor on Shelter Island, on Saturday at 2 p.m. Blankets and beach chairs are suitable for the free outdoor session, during which the author will read, field questions, and sign copies of the book (available for purchase, naturally). Reservations at have been requested.
    “I’m calling my talk ‘Visible/Invisible,’ to help my audience see through the present to recall all those in the past, black as well as white, who have made the manor what it is today,” Ms. Griswold wrote in an e-mail.
    The former plantation is at 80 North Ferry Road.
