Dr. Gary Hylander discusses Darrow for the Defense: The Scopes Trial

Thursday September 26, 2019

Dr. Gary Hylander returns to the Abington Public Library with Darrow for the Defense, a fascinating look at The Scopes Trial.  In 1925, John Scopes, a high school biology teacher in Dayton, Tennessee was arrested for violating the state's law against teaching evolution in the classroom.  The trial featured two of the nation's greatest debaters, Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan.  The legal proceedings spiraled into an all-out duel between science and religion, and over the proper way to teach evolution to high school students.

Registration is not necessary for this lecture; up to 60 adults and older teens (age 16 and up) will be accomodated on a first-to-arrive basis.  This program is provided with State Aid to Public Libraries funds.  Questions may be directed to Library Director Deborah Grimmett at 781-982-2139, or via email at ablib@ocln.org.
