Special Members-Only Event
American Antiquarian Society Talk and Tour
Join us for a free special members-only Talk and Tour Event with James David Moran of the American Antiquarian Society (AAS) – a national library of American history, literature and culture. Worcester’s own AAS library houses the largest and most accessible collection of printed materials from first contact through 1876 in what is now the United States, the West Indies and parts of Canada. Jim is director of outreach and oversees the Society’s promotional activities, the Creative and Performing Artists and Writers Fellowships, and all programming aimed at the general public and K-12 educators and students. He is also a writer, director, and producer who has created a wide variety of video, audio, and theatrical presentations.
Jim will be The Communicators Club (TCC)’s host and provide us with a guided tour through AAS library which contains 20 miles of shelves that hold over three million items including: books, pamphlets, broadsides, newspapers, periodicals, sheet music, and graphic materials – collections that are sure to inspire history buffs as well as anyone with a curious mind.
This special event – offered exclusively to TCC members only – will be held on Thursday, June 9th beginning at 5:00 p.m. for the talk & tour.
A wine & cheese reception and networking will take place immediately following the tour. Connect with other TCC members and open the door to new partnerships and opportunities.
