IN-PERSON DISCUSSION GROUP: The Boston Globe’s 150th anniversary

with Dan Breen

The first in a new series of occasional discussion groups, One Night Only starts in March. No need to make a long-term commitment. Choose which topics suit you and your schedule.

The Boston Globe first appeared in print on March 4, 1872 at a cost of 4 cents. Join us in the Gordon Newspaper Reading Room at 6 pm for a conversation moderated by Dan Breen about its history, impact on Boston, and what it means to you. Francis Storrs, editor of the Globe Magazine,  will be on hand to offer insights, or should we say the Globe’s two cents!

To rsvp, email and librarians will reply with a few articles from the Globe’s vast archive to provide a starting point for the conversation.
