AUTHOR NIGHT: GLORIA WALDRON HUKLE
Gloria Waldron Hukle was bitten by the genealogy bug many years ago and while digging into her early Dutch Colonial Roots on the WALDRON Family she became so interested in their history that her passion for history sparked her career as a novelist. She brings her ancestors and their lives to life with her fictional novels, three of them so far, starting in the 17th century up to more modern times you will see how the families progressed through the generations. You can read more about Gloria and her books at www.authorgloriawaldronhukle.com .
“This novel is a great read for those wanting a glimpse into history through skilled storytelling. Unpretentious and inviting, it is a tale of hardship and determination, of hope and survival. It is the reason writers write. “
“As a resident of the Adirondacks living near North Creek, the scene of this novel, I found it particularly appealing. However, it has universal appeal as a historical novel and a modern mystery, an unbeatable combination. Furthermore, it is based on the true story of the Waldron family, lovingly detailed by an ancestor of the original Waldrons of the Dutch settlement of Nieuw Amsterdam. Introduced to us in Hukle’s “Manhattan Seeds of the Big Apple.” Readers of both books will want to follow with “Threads, An American Tapestry”
Please join us for a great discussion on Gloria’s books and her passion for genealogy on April 13th at 7:00PM at the Valley Falls Library.
