The Bay Ridge Historical Society is kicking off their fall season of programming with a lecture that promises to be a primer for anyone curious about the history of the neighborhood.

Author Henry Stewart, vice president of the organization, will be reading excerpts from his latest book, “How Bay Ridge Became Bay Ridge.” The book, released this summer, documents the transformation of the rural community into an urban neighborhood.

The talk takes place on Wednesday, September 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Shore Hill Community Room at 9000 Shore Road. The event is free and open to the public. For more information visit the society’s website here.
