Spanning two thousand miles and traversing six states from Missouri to the Pacific coast, the Oregon Trail is the route that made America.

We are thrilled to partner with Yaddo to bring the best in new writing and new ideas to the Capital District. The new speaker series YADDO PRESENTS kicks off with a conversation between Yaddo writer WILL HERMES, senior critic at Rolling Stone, and journalist Thomas Dimopoulos, whose book Saratoga Stories: Magic and Loss, came out this summer. Hermes will talk about his life in music writing, and take us into his research on the musician everyone’s been talking about—Lou Reed.
