The Hudson Area Library’s Nonfiction Book Group dives into the history of Hudson on November 4, reading  Diamond Street: The Story of the Little Town with the Big Red Light District  by Bruce Edward Hall.

In her 1995 review, Wendy Knickerbocker for Library Journal said, “Hall has produced a lively and engaging local history, written in a conspiratorial tone that immediately draws in the reader. His liberal use of anecdotes gleaned from interviews and personal papers and 40 period photographs enliven this tale of sin in a small town.”


This book is available for borrowing through the Mid-Hudson Library System.
