CATS’ Conservation book club will meet on tuesday, february 13th, from 5 pM - 6 Pm.


"Off The Northway" by Stephen Williams.  This book is a collection of columns from William's career that offer insight into the development and history of upstate New York.


For more than 40 years, Daily Gazette reporter Stephen Williams had a front-row seat to the history unfolding in Saratoga County. As the population swelled and farms took a back seat to the tech industry along with others that rose up, Williams tracked the changes and put them into context, providing readers a nuanced perspective in his long-running column “Off the Northway.” Eighty-three of the hundreds of columns and stories he penned have been included in a new book, published by the Saratoga County History Center. The book explores Saratoga’s distant and recent past, and asks big questions about development and the environment. It also features stories that highlight the history and lore of Saratoga Springs.


 "A super journalist and gifted writer, Steve Williams delivers a penetrating and insightful first-hand account of the historic events that shaped Saratoga County into a vibrant center of innovation and growth. I learned a lot from perusing these stories." -- Ray O'Conor
