This year has proved to be a rich exploration of the birth of our country! We’ve heard tales of the American Revolution from different points of view; visited the sites of the iconic Bunker Hill battle; read poems of the day; discussed the artworks born from this revolutionary period; and now we will draw it all to a close with two final programs that we help you will join us for:
Saturday, May 3 at 3:00PM: Spencer Aston of the Powers Music School faculty and The Fenway Brass Quintet will play William Billings, broadside ballads, and more music heard from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War. The concert is free thanks to the sponsorship of the Friends of the Belmont Public Library and the other One Book One Belmont co-sponsors.
Tuesday, May 6 at 7:30 PM at the Beech Street Center, we are pleased to welcome author Nathaniel Philbrick for a talk on the award winning book and One Book One Belmont 2014 selection, Bunker Hill: A city, a Siege, a Revolution.
Refreshments will be served, and a book signing will be hosted at the end.
