Join us Wednesday, September 20 for dinner with NY Times best-selling author Michael Tougias, author of the acclaimed Until I Have No Country (A novel of King Philip's War), and co-author with Eric Schultz of King Philip's War: The History and Legacy of America's Forgotten Conflict. He also authored Quabbin: A History and Explorer’s Guide based on the hundreds of hours spent in the Quabbin woods and remnants of the former towns.
Bringing together his research and experience as an outdoorsman, historian and writer, Tougias will talk about the rich history that has shaped our region - first focusing on the bloodiest war fought on North American soil – King Philip’s War – which devastated the colonial and Native American communities of our region, and then one of the greatest fresh water supply systems in the world – the Quabbin Reservoir which dramatically transformed the central Massachusetts landscape.
Doors open at 6:00 pm, with cash bar and book signing. Dinner and presentation follow at 7:15. Last year’s event sold out, so get your tickets now!
