Discussion & Booksigning

ANN CALLAGHAN ALLEN at 5:00pm

Ann Callaghan Allen, The Madame's BusinessThere is probably no prominent figure in the history of Oswego, NY more misunderstood than Malvina Guimaraes. She opened the South American market to the sewing machine, which was the technological wonder of its time. A bold successful business entrepreneur, Guimaraes made her fortune as an independent businesswoman at a time when women rarely ventured beyond their homes. Proceeds from the sale of The Madame's Business will support the restoration of the Madame Guimaraes memorial site in the historic Riverside Cemetery in Oswego.

Oswego native Ann Callaghan Allen is a retired professor from the Department of Communication and Film Studies at LeMoyne College, Syracuse, NY.

 


JOHN SULLIVAN at 6:00pm

John Sullivan, Forks in the Road IIFormer Oswego Mayor John Sullivan is at it again. Forks in the Road II: Small Town Lives and Lessons continues John’s trip down Memory Lane as he informs and entertains us with stories of the people of Oswego. The subjects of his columns are sometimes profound, occasionally inspirational and almost always amusing.
