The Logbooks:  Connecticut’s Slave Ships and Human Memory

February 2       7 PM to 8 PM

 

Come to this thought-provoking presentation by author Anne Farrow who paints a vivid picture of 18th century Connecticut slave trading using three long-neglected ship’s logbooks and other primary sources.  Farrow explores the idea that if our history is incomplete, then collectively, we have forgotten who we are -- a loss similar to the dementia her mother battled as Anne was researching and writing this book.  COST: $6 adults, $5 seniors and students, $4 members. For more information, contact the Society at 860/688-3813.

Snow date:  February 3, 7 PM to 8 PM.
