Dust up on history with upcoming lectures

Whether you’re a history buff or simply interested in the past, you’re sure to enjoy two of our upcoming lectures next week at Waterstone at Wellesley.

On Monday, author Barbara Berenson is visiting to discuss her book, Boston and the Civil War:  Hub of the Second Revolution, which argues that the Civil War began in Boston with a group of abolitionists led by William Lloyd Garrison who organized an unrelenting campaign against southern slavery. 

Berenson is also the author of Walking Tours of Civil War Boston: Hub of Abolitionism and is the co-editor of Breaking Barriers: The Unfinished Story of Women Lawyers and Judges in Massachusetts. A Harvard College and Harvard Law School graduate, she also serves as a senior attorney at the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.

Then, on Tuesday, Stonehill college professor Gary Hylander is visiting to lead the lecture, “Who’s on Mt. Rushmore and Why?” While you may know off the top of your head that George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt are carved into the mountain, you may not know the story behind the monument.

Hylander frequently visits Waterstone to lead presentations on historical events and is a resident favorite.
