Hidden Histories at the American Antiquarian Society
185 Salisbury Street , Worcester
Free admission and swipe for Double WOO points
Men and women 150 years ago grappled with information overload by making scrapbooks --- the ancestors of Google and blogging. From Mark Twain to Abraham Lincoln to Susan B. Anthony, African American janitors to farmwomen, abolitionists to Confederates, people cut out and pasted down their reading. Their scrapbooks -- some of them at AAS -- left us a rarely examined record of what they read and how they read it. This talk, based on Ellen Gruber Garvey's new book, Writing with Scissors: American Scrapbooks from the Civil War to the Harlem Renaissance, opens a new window into the feelings and thoughts of ordinary and extraordinary Americans.
Through July 20th
