Adirondack Distilling Company, Utica’s first legal distillery since prohibition, is pleased to announce author and Oneida County Historical Society volunteer Will Stewart will appear at the Adirondack Distilling Company, 601 Varick St., Utica, to sign copies of his new book, “Prohibition in Black and White: A Sobering look at the Dry Era in Central New York,” from 5-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24.
Stewart’s book is now in stock and is believed to be the first to exclusively tackle the subject of prohibition in the region. In the book, he takes a close look at the Age of Prohibition and how it effected the greater Mohawk Valley between 1920 and 1933.
Utilizing the society’s collection of newspapers, images and artifacts, Prohibition in Black and White is now available in the OCHS bookstore for $15.95, plus tax. Proceeds from sales of signed copies, as well as tasting revenues for the evening, will benefit the Historical Society.
The Oneida County Historical Society is a private 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational institution and is dedicated to preserving history and promoting the culture of the greater Mohawk Valley.
