Join Author and Historian, Dina Vargo as she brings historical figures to life recounting stories of the "wild" women that made Boston what it is today and shares the "hidden history" of the city! There will be time for Q&A after the program. A limited number of Books will be available for sale.
"Boston is one of America's most historic cities, but it has quite a bit of unseen past. Riotous mobs celebrated their hatred of the pope in an annual celebration called Pope's Night during the colonial era. A centuries-long turf war played out on the streets of quiet Chinatown, ending in the massacre of five men in a back alley in 1991. William Monroe Trotter published the Boston Guardian, an independent African American newspaper, and was a beacon of civil rights activism at the turn of the century. Author and historian Dina Vargo shines a light into the cobwebbed corners of Boston's hidden history." Hidden History of Boston
