Program Description

Event Details

This program will also be streamed to our Kingsley Room. Register here if you want to watch it at the library.

John Adams held many roles in the formation of the United States: Lawyer, Co-author of the Declaration of Independence, Ambassador for a fledgling republic, Vice President for two terms for George Washington and  Second President of the United States.  However, his role in the formation of the United States has been less celebrated than some of his contemporaries.  Join us as we explore the life of John Adams.

Mark Albertson is the historical research editor for the Army Aviation magazine, and the historian for the Army Aviation Association of America. He has taught classes on military history at Norwalk Community College as well as the Lifetime Learners Institute. Albertson has authored several books on military history.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this event is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. Registration is required. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Southbury Public Library.  For more information about this program, please email Rebecca at rrandall@biblio.org or call the reference desk at 203-262-0626 ext 130.
