Chartered in 1985, the Greater Astoria Historical Society strives to preserve and recall the past as a way to improve the future of Queens. The nonprofit frequently organizes field trips, walking tours, slide presentations, exhibitions and guest lectures throughout the borough (despite its one-neighborhood name).
Looking to fulfill its mission and raise money, GAHS will host a Book Extravaganza at its Broadway headquarters, featuring a mind-boggling selection of fiction and non-fiction covering history, cooking, children’s tales, fantasy, self-help, sci-fi and much more. The group will also sell its signature Astoria, Sunnyside and Long Island City t-shirts.
