Don't miss the W.L. Garrison - Harriet Tubman lecture
sponsored by NPT's Next Generation Preservationists

Coming right up on Saturday, Dec. 12, at 7 p.m. is the inaugural William Lloyd Garrison Lecture sponsored by NPT's Next Generation Preservationists, this year featuring author/scholar Kate Clifford Larson presenting "Lloyd and Moses: The Remarkable Friendship of William Lloyd Garrison and Harriet Tubman."

The Zoom lecture is funded by a gift from the Next Generation Preservationists of the Newburyport Preservation Trust, and is co-sponsored by the Newburyport Daily News. The program is hosted on the Zoom platform of the Newburyport Public Library. Attendees can register online at: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Ns9Abrf8R02VFbh8ou4ZVw

Kate Clifford Larson, a Women's Studies Research Scholar at Brandeis University, is the author of Bound for the Promised Land: Harriet Tubman, Portrait of an American Hero. To learn more about the presenter and her research, read the Nov. 16 article in the Newburyport Daily News here.

In Newburyport, the topic unites history and preservation in a most timely way, as the Newburyport Preservation Trust has consulted on renovations to the William Lloyd Garrison birthplace at 3-5 School Street, and is contributing to the funding of interpretive panels planned for Atwood Park.

Join the crown Saturday on Zoom to show support for our Next Generation Preservationists.
