This series features 20-40 minute presentations on topics ranging from local history, architecture, personal collections, to travel around the world, followed by Q&A. It repeats monthly on the third Thursday. On July 19, author Bob Hubbard will share additional research about "Old Put," Gen. Israel Putnam, who played key roles in the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War. In 1758 he barely escaped from being burned alive by Mohawk warriors. He later commanded a force of 500 men who were shipwrecked off the coast of Cuba. It was he who reportedly gave the command, "Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes" at the Battle of Bunker Hill. Robert Ernest Hubbard is a retired professor from Albertus Magnus College in New Haven and an adjunct faculty member in the college's Master of Fine Arts in Writing Program.

Gloucester Stage's 2018 Season is full of fabulous stories, steeped in history and classic literature. The Page2Stage book group through Sawyer Free Library will discuss William McFeely's award winning biography, "Frederick Douglass" followed by a production of Gloucester Stage's "The Agitators." This new play tells of the enduring but tempestuous friendship of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Young abolitionists when they met in Rochester in the 1840s, they were full of hopes, dreams, and a common purpose. They agitated the nation, they agitated each other and, in doing so, they helped shape the Constitution and the course of American history. Registration is free with discount theater tickets available for registered members.
