Fitchburg Public Library presents Historic New England Book Talk with Patricia Harris and David Lyons


Join us at the Fitchburg Public Library (610 Main St.) on July 25, at 6:30 PM. Ms Harris and Mr. Lyons will present their book Historic New England: a Tour of the Region’s Top 100 Landmarks.  While New England boasts over 400 landmarks, “historic” does not always translate into “interesting”.  Ms. Harris and Mr. Lyons have sought out those with the most interesting and rewarding histories.  They recount not only houses and tall ships, but also weather stations, carousels, and even beaches.  As the authors of over thirty books on travel, food, and art, they are well positioned to share with us their most memorable experiences so that we can visit them as well!

Light refreshments will be served.  This is a free program.  Free parking is available in the lot at the corner of Boulder Drive and Newton Place. F or information about this or other Library programs call 978-82-1780 or visit our website:
