“Footsteps through Alaska” Brings the Last Frontier to the Seymour Library


The Seymour Library is letting you take a trip to Alaska this weekend without even leaving Auburn.

The library will host Footsteps through Alaska: Music & Poetry with Ken Waldman & Lydia Garrison this Saturday at 1:00p.

The free event sees Waldman blend music, poetry, and stories as he recounts his travels to the state known as the last frontier. He has spent 38 years in Alaska and has used the setting to produce music, stories, and poetry.

Maureen McEvers, Seymour Library’s Director of Communications and Marketing, said the library is excited to have Waldman share his stories with attendees.

“He’s going to be reflecting upon his travels throughout Alaska,” McEvers said. “He’s got quite a few amazing stories and he is an accomplished author so we’re looking forward to this event.”

Waldman will be joined by special guest Lydia Garrison. A longtime resident of Ithaca, Garrison is a fellow musician who will accompany him.

Footsteps through Alsaka is funded partly by Poets & Writers with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts.
