Paterson History

September 27th, 2014

Sunday, November 16th 7pm-8pm

Leslie Rupley is the author of Beyond the Silk Mills, a historical family saga. She writes extensively for clients who wish to publish memoirs for their families and consults with others who choose to write their own memoirs. As a personal historian, she has twelve memoirs to her credit.
Leslie lives in Walnut Creek, California, where she spends her early mornings
hiking trails in the nearby foothills. Her husband Bill, family, and friends are central to her life, but she also reads, knits, travels, volunteers, and works on her sequel

In Beyond the Silk Mills, Rupley spins a compelling saga of family discord, obsessive ambition, romance, and regret. She depicts the Epstein family’s struggle during the early twentieth century in New York City and Paterson, New Jersey, and through their story illuminates the roots of modern feminism and contemporary labor issues.
