In-person Event: The Boston Globe’s 150th Anniversary 

The Boston Globe first appeared in print on March 4, 1872. Join us in the Gordon Newspaper Reading Room at 6:00 p.m. for a conversation, moderated by Dan Breen, about its history, impact on Boston, and what it means to you. 

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