The Beehive: the official blog of the Massachusetts Historical Society

This Week @ MHS

It's a brown-bag lunch bonanza this week at 1154 Boylston!

On Monday, 27 July, research fellow Sara Lampert (University of Michigan) will discuss her current project, "The Public Woman: Taking to the Stage in Nineteenth-Century America."

On Wednesday, 29 July, research fellow Jeffrey Kosiorek (Hendrix College) will discuss his current project, "The Power of Our Patriot Fathers: Memory, Commemoration, and the American Revolution in the Nineteenth Century."

And on Friday, 31 July, our own Hobson Woodward will discuss his newly-released book, A Brave Vessel: The True Tale of the Castaways Who Rescued Jamestown and Inspired Shakespeare's 'The Tempest.'" A short interview with Hobson appeared in Sunday's Boston Globe, and A Brave Vessel has been reviewed in the Washington Post, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Kirkus Reviews and Publisher's Weekly (among other outlets). Copies will be available for purchase and signing.

All three events will be held from 12-1 (in the Dowse Library on Monday and Wednesday, and in the Red Room on Friday).
