Event Friends of the Library Speaker and Annual Meeting

September 26, 2019 | 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Join us for the Friends Annual Meeting and Speaker event. Our featured speaker is Bethany Groff Dorau from Historic New England. Bethany recently published an account of Eben "Bunny" Bradbury, son of two historic Newburyport families, who joined the United States Marine Corps just days after the declaration of war in April 1917. In A Newburyport Marine in World War I: The Life and Legacy of Eben Bradbury, Bethany tells a story that goes beyond a tragic battlefield death and uncovers a rich and complex American family, rooted deeply in a truly American city. Please join us in the Library Program Room to hear Bethany describe her research adventure. This event is free and open to all!
