WHERE: Com­mu­nity Room of Kingston Li­brary, 55 Franklin St., Kingston.

There are stone sites that are as­sumed to be the work of colo­nial farmers, but Zim­mer­mann has found com­pelling ev­i­dence that dis­putes this mis­con­cep­tion. She ex­plores stone cham­bers, perched boul­ders, stand­ing stones and mas­sive walls that may just be unique his­tor­i­cal trea­sures that must be stud­ied and pre­served. Zimmerman is the au­thor of over 30 books, is a pop­u­lar speaker, and has made numer­ous ap­pear­ances on tele­vi­sion and ra­dio. She has re­ceived hon­ors and awards for her books on Amer­i­can his­tory, and has lec­tured at the Smith­so­nian, West Point and Get­tys­burg. In ad­di­tion, she has ap­peared at ma­jor sci­ence fic­tion con­ven­tions for her two nov­els.
