The Third Mrs. Galway, with Deirdre Sinnott
November 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Within her home, Helen is haunted by the previous Mrs. Galway, recently deceased but still an oppressive presence. Her husband, injured by a drunken tumble off his horse, is assisted by a doctor of questionable ambitions who keeps a close eye on Helen. It’s 1835 in Utica, New York, and newlywed Helen Galway discovers a secret: two people who have escaped enslavement are hiding in the shack behind her husband’s house. Suddenly, she is at the center of the era’s greatest moral dilemma: Should she be a “good wife” and report the fugitives? Or will she defy convention and come to their aid? Author Deirdre Sinnott, a native of Utica, NY and a lifelong civil rights activist, will speak about her book, The Third Mrs. Galway.
