Local author Chip Haley to talk at Jervis
Chip Haley, author of “Rome Through Our History,” will speak at 2 p.m. on Saturday in the accessible auditorium at Jervis Public Library.
The book features more than 200 local history columns Haley has written as a volunteer for the Rome Historical Society for publication in the Rome Sentinel. Topics in the 103-page book include Romans awarded the Medal of Honor, famous Rome authors and historic downtown buildings.
During the program, she will talk about some of her favorite columns and the unusual ways she obtained information included in them. After the program, Haley will be on hand to sell and autograph copies of her book, which sells for $15.
Haley worked at the Rome Sentinel Co. for more than 20 years as a reporter and editor. She was also an adjunct professor at SUNY Utica-Rome, now SUNY Poly, where she taught professional communications.
She holds bachelor’s degrees in journalism from the University of Missouri and in government from the University of Maryland, and a master’s degree is urban and regional planning from the University of Hawaii.
Haley and her husband Robert now reside in the town of Western.
This program is free and open to the public. For more information, ask at the Reference Desk or call the library at 315-336-4570.
