David McCullough and Brent D. Glass: Essential Historic Sites
Don't miss a fascinating evening with two of the nation's leading historians talking about cultural and historic sites here in Boston and across the United States and what makes them essential. Acclaimed author David McCullough and expert historian Brent D. Glass, Director Emeritus of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, will discuss the importance of experiencing and preserving our essential historic sites and their stories: compelling struggles of democracy and self-government; the dramatic impact of military conflict; the powerful role of innovation and enterprise; the inspiring achievements of diverse cultural traditions; and the defining influence of the land and its resources. The new book 50 Great American Places: Essential Historic Sites Across the U.S. by Brent D. Glass, with a foreword by David McCullough, is a one-of-a-kind guide to fifty of these places - including Boston and sites on the Freedom Trail and Black Heritage Trail - that reveal a national narrative that is often surprising, sometimes tragic, and always engaging. Book sales and signing will follow the program.

About David McCullough: David McCullough has been widely acclaimed as a master of the art of narrative history, and a matchless writer. He is two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, two-time winner of the National Book Award, and has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nations highest civilian award.

A national leader in the preservation, interpretation, and promotion of history, Glass is a public historian who pioneered influential oral history and material culture studies, an author, television presence, and international speaker on public memory and museum management.
