— There are mysteries in the woods, stone sites that are assumed to be the work of colonial farmers. But author and researcher Linda Zimmermann has found compelling evidence that disputes this misconception.

Zimmermann will give a talk on her new book, “Mysterious Stone Sites in the Hudson Valley of New York and northern New Jersey,” in the community room of the Port Jervis Free Library at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 9. She explores stone chambers, perched boulders, standing stones, and massive walls that may just be unique historical treasures to be studied and preserved. Could they be the work of Native Americans or Pre-Columbian voyagers?

Copies of her book will be available for purchase for $15 each. This is a free program, open to all. Refreshments will be served.

The library is located at 138 Pike St. in Port Jervis. For more information call the library at 845-856-7313 ext. 4.
