lecture

Archer Mayor at Battenkill Books, 2-4 p.m., Battenkill Books, 15 E. Main St., Cambridge. Join Battenkill Books for an afternoon with New York Times bestselling mystery writer Archer Mayor as he presents his newest novel, "Bury the Lead." When the body of a young woman is found near a trail at a popular ski mountain, the case falls to Joe Gunther and his team at the Vermont Bureau of Investigation (VBI). They quickly have a suspect, Mick Durocher, and a confession, but not everyone on the team is convinced. Despite Mick's ready admission, investigators quickly sense there might be more going on than is immediately apparent. At the same time, a large local business is being targeted with escalating acts of vandalism — a warehouse fire, a vandalized truck, a massive cooling system destroyed — resulting in loss of life. And either by coincidence, or not, Mick Durocher, the self-confessed murderer, was once employed by this very company. These two puzzling cases — now possibly connected — are further complicated by the sidelining of a key member of VBI, Willy Kunkle, who undergoes surgery at a hospital that appears to be having an unlikely — and suspiciously timed — outbreak of Ebola. Joe and his team pursue these cases, uncovering motives that might link them, while proving that trust betrayed can be a toxic virus, turning love into murderous loathing. Indeed, behind the mayhem and murder, Joe must uncover a tragic history before another victim dies. Mayor, in addition to writing the New York Times bestselling Joe Gunther series, is an investigator for the sheriff's department, the state medical examiner, and has 25 years of experience as a firefighter/EMT. He lives near Brattleboro, Vermont. Battenkill Books can be reached at 518-677-2515 or at www.battenkillbooks.com.

Gold Star Memorial Dedication, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Congress Park, 315 Broadway, Saratoga Springs. The public is invited to a Gold Star Memorial Dedication. The Gold Star Marker is sponsored by the Federated Garden Clubs of NYS, District IV. The site in Congress Park was prepared by the City of Saratoga Springs Public Works Department. Dating back to World War I, the term Gold Star came from the custom of families of servicemen hanging a banner in the window of their homes. The service flag had a star for each family member that was serving in the Armed Forces. Living servicemen were represented by a Blue Star and those who had lost their lives by a Gold Star. Blue Star Markers have been placed in various locations since 1944, honoring veterans who have served. The Gold Star Marker installation began in 2014 to remember our deceased veterans and their Gold Star Families. The families' loved ones paid the ultimate price defending their country. The ceremony of dedication will include an Honor Guard, bagpipers, representatives from veterans' organizations, Gold Star Mothers and Families and the NYS Federated Garden Club president. Refreshments will follow at the Visitors' Center. For more information, contact Barbara Millington at 518-587 3085.
