Author Talk: Stephanie Schorow – A Boston Harbor Islands Adventure
Thursday, October 5 @ 7:00 pmFree
The Medford Public Library hosts Medford author Stephanie Schorow for a talk on her book, “A Boston Harbor Islands Adventure: The Great Brewster Journal of 1891.” In 1891, four intrepid women from Lowell sailed to a remote island in Boston Harbor for a 17-day escape from New England’s prim and proper society. Calling themselves the Scribe, the Aristocrat, the Acrobat, and the Autocrat, the women rusticated in a cottage on Great Brewster Island, reveling in the chance to shed their identities of wife, mother and daughter. Relive their sojourn through their remarkable journal, filled with observations, illustrations, photographs and poetry, reproduced by Stephanie Schorow and the Friends of the Boston Harbor Islands. RSVP through the library’s online calendar.
