Glen Haven, NY, Historical Society Hosts Ithaca Diaries Discussion

Glenhaven16The Glen Haven Historical Society (GHHS) held a discussion of Anita HARRIS’ new book, Ithaca Diaries, in Homer, NY, on August 19. Organizers Marilyn REINER Levine, ’68, and Lauren REINER Jastremski, ’64, are Milne School graduates and sisters who realized that Anita, ’66, and her sister, Laura HARRIS Hirsch, ’68, also went to Milne when they (the Reiner sisters) started reading the book.

The Milne School, in Albany, New York, founded in 1845, was a campus laboratory school of what is now State University of New York at Albany until Milne closed in 1977). 

Lauren is secretary of the Glen Haven Historical Society. Diane BAKKE Tennant, ’64, vice president and trustees’ chair of the GHHS, also helped organize the event.

Joyce CAREY Methelis, ’66, attended; she reports a lively conversation that brought back vivid memories of college in the late 1960s–which is what Ithaca Diaries is about. More information and links to interviews, reviews, and video relating to the book are available at
