Join us for an afternoon of readings and discussions at The Stafford Library for the 2020 Stafford Literary Festival!

Justin Martin, a highly-praised biographer and author of five books, will discuss his biography of Frederick Law Olmstead — Genius of Place: The Life of Frederick Law Olmstead

Born in Hartford, Connecticut, Frederick Law Olmstead was a famous landscape artist who designed New York City’s Central Park and Forest Park in Springfield, Massachusetts among many others. A passionate abolitionist, conservationist, and environmentalist, Olmstead’s work remains a vital, relevant part of our American story.
