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.
