      Don't Make Me Pull Over! With Richard Ratay

      In Don't Make Me Pull Over: An Informal History of the Family Road Trip, Richard Ratay examines a cultural phenomenon as iconic as Fourth of July fireworks, baseball, and apple pie: the American family road trip. Through the gentle filter of nostalgia, Ratay recalls getting lost, running out of gas, hours of car games, and napping on the rear-window ledge of his father's Cadillac as his family of six headed south in search of warmer weather, golf courses, and adventure. At 2 pm Saturday, March 9, at The Hyde Collection, the author will share humorous stories about his family's time on American highways. With the bright images of Colorama as a backdrop, Ratay will talk about how road trips became an American birthright, faded out of style, and why they're making a comeback. The event is co-presented with Northshire Bookstore, which will have copies of Don't Make Me Pull Over available for purchase. Ratay will be available to sign copies before the presentation. To register, call 518-792-1761, ext. 310, or email adminassist@hydecollection.org. This event is made possible with funding from the Robert Lehman Foundation.

      Cost: Payment required - Admission is $5 for members and $8 for non-members.
