Susanna SalkFriday, September 9, 6:30pm


Susanna Salk is a designer, stylist, stager as well as the author of many best-selling design books. Her first was the unexpected hit, “A Privileged Life, Celebrating WASP Style” which stemmed from her upbringing on Boston’s North Shore. Her next books celebrated design, from the personal weekend spaces of style makers in “Weekend Retreats” to “Room for Children: Stylish Spaces for Sleep and Play,” which was the first book of its kind to explore design for the junior set. “Be Your Own Decorator: Taking Cues and Confidence from Today’s Leading Designers” followed, inspiring people to take design into their own hands. Her 2013 debut of “C.Z. Guest: American Style Icon,” was the first pictorial book on the iconic style of C.Z. Guest. “Decorate Fearlessly! Using Whimsy, Confidence and a Dash of Surprise to Create Personal Spaces,” explores the power and panache rooms can have when decorated with confidence instead of rules.


Her eighth book, and the topic for her presentation at Boscobel, “It’s the Little Things: Creating Big Moments In Your Home Through the Stylish Small Stuff” debuted Spring 2016. Ms. Salk also hosts the monthly “At Home With” video series on the Quintessence design blog, which captures her visiting the homes of top designers and style makers around the globe.


The lecture will take place in Boscobel’s grand entrance hall at 6:30pm, followed by a wine and cheese reception sponsored by Munder-Skiles Garden Furniture, Garrison, NY.

Author, environmentalist and lawyer Fred Rich serves as head of the New York State Environmental Leaders Group, Chair of the Foundation for Landscape Studies and the Scenic Hudson Land Trust, Vice Chair of the national Land Trust Alliance and The Battery Conservancy, and director of the Hudson Highlands Land Trust. He also serves on the Advisory Board of The Hastings Center (bioethics), and the Dean’s Advisory Committee of The City University of New York School of Public Health. He is the winner of the Battery Urban Farmer Award (from The Battery Conservancy, for promotion of urban agriculture, 2012), the Environmental Advocates of New York Advocates Award (for environmental advocacy in New York State, 2011), and the Frances Reese Medal (from Scenic Hudson, for service to the Hudson Valley, 2010).


Mr. Rich’s lecture, based on his new book, “Getting to Green, Saving Nature: A Bipartisan Solution” will focus on the environmental movement and environmental politics. Can we save the world with half the country in determined opposition? Can Republicans and conservatives be returned to their long tradition of environmental stewardship? Join in the discussion.
