Claverack Library Presents ‘Marilyn Monroe in Claverack’, Jul 29

In 1954 Marilyn Monroe visited a friend in Claverack to escape New York City and the break-up of her marriage to Joe DiMaggio. She stayed with a friend at a home that has come to be known as “The Marilyn Monroe House”.

This Sunday, Claverack resident Maureen McNeil will read from her new book, Dear Red, the Lost Diary of Marilyn Monroe (a work of fiction) in the garden of The Marilyn Monroe House. The reading will be followed by refreshments and a tour of the first floor of the house led by present owner Julius James.

This free program, sponsored by the Claverack Free Library, illuminates the final year of the life of America’s greatest sex symbol and offers a glimpse of Claverack history. Maureen McNeil is an artist, educator, and writer who works within nonprofit organizations using the arts for social change.
