The Saratoga County History Center announced the publication of a new book on local history.
“Off the Northway” is a compilation of 83 articles written by longtime local journalist Stephen Williams, who retired after a 42-year career at the Daily Gazette in Schenectady.
The book, a collection of his weekly “Off the Northway” columns and other stories spanning the period from 2005 through 2020, will be released and become available for sale beginning at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 28 at a presentation and book signing by the author at Brookside Museum, 6 Charlton St., Ballston Spa, the home of the History Center.
Pre-registration for the event can be made at brooksidemuseum.org. The book will also be available at local bookstores, additional book signing sessions to be announced, and at amazon.com
“Off the Northway” provides a reporter’s up-close perspective on the events that impacted people living in Saratoga County during this 15-year period and reflects on the changes seen across the county stemming from the construction of the Adirondack Northway six decades ago.
