    July Programs at the Museum of the City of New York

    Explorers, Fortunes and Love Letters: A Window on New Netherland

    In 1609 the sailors aboard Henry Hudson’s ship the Half Moon laid their eyes upon the entrance to what would come to be known as the Hudson River, and within 15 years the Dutch began to settle the newly discovered land, creating the colony of New Netherland. Explorers, Fortunes and Love Letters: A Window on New Netherland (Mount Ida Press, 2009) is a compilation of new essays that together explore the fascinating story of this diverse and enterprising colony and its enduring cultural impact. Join contributors Noah L. Gelfand, Ph.D., author and professor; Peter G. Rose, author and food historian; and David Voorhees, Managing Editor of de Halve Maen and Director of the Papers of Jacob Leisler Project at NYU, for a discussion moderated by Charles Th. Gehring, Ph.D., Director of the New Netherland Project and the celebrated translator of the 17th-century Dutch documents that have opened the world of New Netherland to the 21st century. Presented in conjunction with Amsterdam/New Amsterdam: The Worlds of Henry Hudson. Book signing will follow.
