Ms. Malcolmson first came to Shelter Island in 1969 and decided back then that she would write a book someday about her experiences.

On Sunday, September 2, the Shelter Island Historical Society will host an art show and book signing from 4 to 6 p.m. The authors featured will be Karen Kiaer, whose book, “Ancestors Through My Eyes,” was the subject of a profile in the Reporter earlier this month (“Finding a family hidden in the past,” August 9) and Diana Malcolmson, well-known to generations of Islanders who have learned to ride at her horse farms. The art exhibit will feature Ms. Malcolmson’s equestrian paintings, which beautifully illustrate the story she unfolds in her book, “For the Love of Horses.”
