Two well-known ex-journalists, who both left significant imprints on the Capital Region’s media landscape, were at the Open Door Bookstore & Gift Gallery in Schenectady on Friday (Dec. 17) to sign their books.
Ed Dague (left) was signing the memoir Six and Eleven: A Television News Anchor’s Story. According to a press release, the book is “a sage and penetrating look at the news business in the Albany metro area, at the people and personalities who both made and reported that news.” On his sharp, to the point, and entertaining Times Union blog In Media Res, Dague wrote “it is a lot better than I expected.”
Dan Lynch (right) was signing The Thunder of Captains: A Novel of the Battle of Saratoga. The former editor, reporter and columnist’s book was praised in Metroland last summer for capturing the “gripping drama of the courageous soldiers behind both lines,” and for its “rich descriptions of life in colonial upstate New York.”
