Join the Hopewell Branch of the Mercer County Library on January 15 at 6 p.m. and hear local authors Elaine Buck and Beverly Mills, former board members of the Stoutsburg Cemetery Association, speak about their new book “If These Stones Could Talk.” Based on decades of research, oral histories, land deeds, church records and preserved plots, Buck and Mills accumulated stories that consecrate the collected lives of a minority black community in a predominantly white region of the Sourland Mountains of New Jersey. The book provides a unique window to African-Americans in New Jersey previously missing from the historical record.

Registration is requested for this lecture. Please call the Hopewell Branch of the Mercer County Library at (609) 737-2610 or email hopeprogs@mcl.org.
