Historic Palmyra presents
Michael Keene, author of The Psychic Highway

Thursday, February 18, 7-9pm
Alling Coverlet Museum, 122 William St.

Join local author Michael T. Keene for a presentation on his new book The Psychic Highway: How the Erie Canal Changed America. This book uncovers how the Erie Canal opened up vital passageways that led to the advent of the major social, political and religious movements that swept through upstate New York during the 19th century. Keene delves into the Canalís inspiration, evolution and impact on American life and how the Canal bridged the gap of communications and travel, setting the stage for history altering events.

About the Author
Mr. Keene has combined his interests in local history, writing and film making in order to explore unique and fascinating chapters of 19th century New York history. What began as a hobby twelve years ago has now become a grand obsession!

 

The Erie Canal delivered people to important places for important reasons, like Susan Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott to Seneca Falls for historyís first womenís convention; to Rochester to meet and support Frederick Douglass and Harriett Tubman or to witness the Fox Sisters summon spirits and their eerie knockings. Or maybe people on the temperance bandwagon hurrying to the Burned Over District so Charles Finney could save their souls. It was a time of intense individual focus and enlightened change in the ways in which people communicated. It was as if a bolt of electricity struck western New York, lighting it up as fertile ground for ideas and lifestyles that had never been expressed or attempted before. It was a time of religious re-birth, ongoing social reform and making oneís life the best it could be in the present, in the future . . . and even the great beyond.
