He will share his stories of the region, its people, events and folk tales. Refreshments will be provided.

Graves of Upstate New York presents a look at the lives and deaths of 100 legendary Americans who are laid to rest in Upstate New York.

D’Imperio takes readers on a journey across the state, visiting an array of famous New York grave sites, from Mark Twain, Harriet Tubman, and James Fenimore Cooper to Helen Hayes, Lucille Ball, four U.S. presidents, a Kentucky Derby–winning horse, and the most famous one-legged tap dancer in the world.

D’Imperio tells the story of each individual, along with photographs and detailed information about the cemetery. From West Point to Lake Placid to Buffalo and all points north, south, east, and west, Graves of Upstate New York offers a cultural tour across the great expanse of Upstate New York in search of its famous residents and their lasting legacies.
