The Bradford County Library presents Sheryl Robinson, discussing her book “From Maspeth to Sugar Creek: A Story of Two Families” on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 6 p.m.
Sheryl’s story begins in seventeenth century England’s West Country. It then follows on ancestral journeys and the founding of Massachusetts Bay and Connecticut Colonies. Diverse cultures clash, with the introduction of Europeans to the indigenous people of New England and Long Island.
