Join us for a special Zoom event on Saturday, July 29, at 4 p.m. Joining us will be Linda Osborne Cynowa, author of the new book, Lighthouses of the North Atlantic Coast.
Linda’s book will explore — through vintage postcards — many of the lighthouses in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Delaware. Countless people have enjoyed visiting these lights while on vacation over the years, and many have sent postcards back home to loved ones. Many of these important navigational aids are still in existence and can be visited, thanks to the historical societies and associations that still maintain them.
Linda Osborne Cynowa has had a love of lighthouses for many years. She has a background in photography and genealogy, along with vintage lighthouse postcard collecting. She also has had a lifelong love of history. She volunteered at the archives at her local library, researching the historical homes and families in the Romeo and Washington area in Michigan where she lives. She is the author of Washington Township (2019), Macomb Township (2020), Farming in Northern Macomb County (2021), and Lighthouses and Lifesaving on the Great Lakes (2022), all published by Arcadia Publishing. The Lighthouses of the South Atlantic and Gulf Coast and Lighthouse of the Pacific Coast are in the works.
