Karen Johnson-Weiner, professor of Anthropology at SUNY-Potsdam and author of Train Up a Child: Old Order Amish and Mennonite Schools, has a new book coming out this summer, called New York Amish: Life in the Plain Communities of the Empire State.

To my knowledge this will be the first book-length treatment of Amish in New York, and it comes at a fitting time, with the state’s Amish population booming.

I will be sure to have more on it nearer to publication, but in the meantime, if you like you can have a read of a three-part interview we did last year, in which the professor discusses New York Amish, Swartzentruber Amish, and Old Order education.
