Authors Discuss Catskills History, Japanese Internment Camps

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on



This week on New York NOW we have two interviews on some of the more compelling moments in our country's history. 

Stephen Silverman joins us to discuss his book "The Catskills: Its History and How it Changed America."  The country's first great vacationland is examined through the poets, gangsters and the rich and famous that frequented the wild forests of upstate New York. 

Kermit Roosevelt, the great-great grandson of Theodore Roosevelt, released a novel this year on a topic that is becoming more and more relevant in 2015.  His fictional thriller looks at how America looked at and treated Japanese Americans during World War II.
