Previous Forge Library to host Sue Kiesel’s Therapeutic Energy of Photographing Outdoor presentation on Aug. 11 –


On August 11 at 5:00 p.m. in the Local Stories and Stories series, Sue Kiesel will introduce Sue Kiesel and her presentation on the healing power of outdoor photography in the Adirondacks at the Old Forge Library.

Sue is a lifelong lover of the Adirondacks, having lived here her entire life as a seasonal resident. She started her current passion for photography 15 years ago and is a real addiction! She enjoys sharing her shots more than anything. Her greatest wish is to inspire others to appreciate the healing quality that nature offers to all of us. When others catch the disease, they too may learn the fragility of Mother Nature and advocate protecting her for generations to come.

Sue has been a longtime supporter of both the Old Forge Library and the Town of Webb Historical Association’s Goodsell Museum. As the photographer and author of The Many Faces of Snowy Owls, her wildlife photographs of the Adirondacks will be the documents used by future historians.
