New book about Plum Island
A World Unto Itself: The Remarkable History of Plum Island New York
Book signing Sunday, August 24, at 2 PM
Ruth Ann Bramson, Ph.D. is a retired university professor who splits her time between Boston, Massachusetts and East Marion, New York. Regularly passing Plum Island by ferry, she developed a curiosity about the island and began researching and lecturing about its history. She is the author, along with Geoffrey Fleming and Amy Folk, of the new book, A World Unto Itself: The Remarkable History of Plum Island New York, to be published next month by the Southold Historical Society.
Few islands are as little known or as misunderstood as Plum Island, New York. Over time, the unfamiliarity with Plum Island has given rise to legends and tall tales. But, the facts are even more fascinating than the folklore. Now, for the first time, the history of Plum Island has been collected and made available to readers. This book is intended to let Plum Island tell its own story and reveal the many previously undocumented realities and personalities that have combined to define it--and the forces now at work toward directing its future.
