If you ever stopped at the Red Apple Rest, the landmark restaurant is about to return the favor. Elaine Freed Lindenblatt will be here with the inside story of her family's colorful eatery. Take a fifty-year armchair ride back along New York Route 17 and learn what it was like to grow up in a round-the-clock family business that served more than one million customers annually. Elaine's book Stop at the Red Apple will be available for sale and signing.

About Elaine Freed Lindenblatt: Elaine Freed Lindenblatt is the youngest daughter of Reuben Freed, a Russian immigrant who turned his roadside stop into the celebrated Red Apple Rest. Elaine is an editor and writer whose essays on topics ranging from slice-of-life to the Holocaust are widely published in Hudson Valley newspapers. She calls her book Stop at the Red Apple "the story I had to tell."
More about the book is available online at www.StopattheRedApple.com and www.Sunypress.edu.
