History meets the present at BPL

We have some really wonderful programs coming up in our Main Reading Room on Saturdays at 1:00 through the end of September. Join us Saturday the 14th for Paul St. Cyr, local author who has written two historical novels based on the journey of a Confederate soldier. Alex Myers will be here on the 21st to discuss stories of transgender identity and contribution to American history, from the Revolutionary War to today. Finally, Stan Cohen will be here on the 28th presenting Women in the American Civil War, having been inspired by the contributions of women as he did extensive research into American Civil War history.

Each of these presentations is an opportunity to explore issues of gender, choice, loyalty, and courage that are as relevant today as they have ever been. Pre-registration is requested, light refreshments will be served at each event.
