This coming Monday evening, November 28 at 6:30, at the Brooklyn Historical Society, two noted historians, Steven Hahn and Eric Foner, will discuss Hahn’s book, A Nation Without Borders, which is not about America after the closing of a major bookstore chain, but instead “takes a provocative new look at the eight decades surrounding the Civil War.” Admission is $10, or $5 for BHS or Green-Wood members; buy tickets here.
On Tuesday evening, November 29 at 6:30, Paula Span, columnist for The New York Times, will moderate a discussion among a distinguished panel on the subject of aging and ageism, and “the misconceptions older people face.” Admission is $10, or $5 for BHS or Green-Wood members; buy tickets here. This event is presented in partnership with Heights and Hills.
On Thursday evening, December 1 at 6:30, archivist John Zarrillo will discuss “how to properly store and handle your family’s papers, photographs, and memorabilia.” Admission is $20, or $15 for BHS or Green-Wood members; buy tickets here.
