Bancroft Prize-winning historian, Robert Gross, will discuss his newest book, The Transcendentalists and Their World, in which he offers both an intimate journey into the life of a Concord and a searching cultural study of the town’s major American writers as they plumbed the depths of the universe for spiritual truths and surveyed the rapidly changing contours of their own neighborhoods. According to one reviewer, no American community of the nineteenth century has been recovered so richly and with so acute an awareness of its place in the larger American story. Advanced registration required. Churchill and Franklin Lyceum and Livestreamed This program is supported in part by the Sally Lanagan Fund.

Bestselling author Nathaniel Philbrick will discuss his new book, Travels with George. When George Washington became president in 1789, the United States was a loose and quarrelsome confederation so he undertook a tour of all thirteen ex-colonies to talk to ordinary citizens. In retracing Washington’s journey, Mr. Philbrick weaves history and personal reflection into a single and wonderfully engaging narrative. This program is supported in part by the Sally Lanagan Fund. This program is both in-person at the Concord Museum and livestreamed to a virtual audience. Please indicate during registration which ticketing option you are choosing.
There are no dates set for future family programs.
