SNAC Presents: Your Digital Legacy: What Happens to Your Digital Content When you Pass?

For most of us, it's not the things we own. It's our memories, our relationships with others, and the way we've contributed to the world. But what about the digital part of your life? What happens to your email and photos when you're gone? Do they get deleted or archived? If so, who decides what happens next?

Joe Kissell has been helping people deal with their digital estate for more than a decade, and now he wants to help YOU! Join him as he discusses how to manage your digital belongings—how to back up your data securely so that it can be passed along after your passing and how to erase sensitive information so no one else will ever be able to read it again.

This is an open event for members and non-members.

The Deviant's War: The Homosexual vs. The United States of America, with author Eric Cervini

Join us for a Zoom discussion with award-winning author and historian Eric Cervini on his painstakingly researched and engagingly written book, The Deviant’s War: The Homosexual vs. the United States of America. A New York Times bestseller and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, The Deviant's War uncovers the secret history of the fight for gay rights that began a generation before Stonewall, told through the life and unprecedented legal efforts of astronomer Franklin Edward Kameny. This discussion will be moderated by Jasmine Allen of PBS NH. 

Register here for the Zoom link. 


About the author: Eric Cervini is an award-winning historian of LGBTQ+ culture and politics. He graduated summa cum laude from Harvard College and received his Ph.D. in history from the University of Cambridge, where he was a Gates Scholar. The Deviant’s War is his first book.

About the book: In 1957, Frank Kameny, a rising astronomer working for the U.S. Defense Department in Hawaii, received a summons to report immediately to Washington, D.C. The Pentagon had reason to believe he was a homosexual, and after a series of humiliating interviews, Kameny, like countless gay men and women before him, was promptly dismissed from his government job. Unlike many others, though, Kameny fought back.

Based on firsthand accounts, recently declassified FBI records, and forty thousand personal documents, Eric Cervini's The Deviant's War unfolds over the course of the 1960s, as the Mattachine Society of Washington, the group Kameny founded, became the first organization to protest the systematic persecution of gay federal employees. It traces the forgotten ties that bound gay rights to the Black Freedom Movement, the New Left, lesbian activism, and trans resistance. Above all, it is a story of America (and Washington) at a cultural and sexual crossroads; of shocking, byzantine public battles with Congress; of FBI informants; murder; betrayal; sex; love; and ultimately victory.

 

This program is presented by the Nashua Public Library in partnership with PBS NH and the following New England libraries: Memorial Hall Library, Manchester-by-the-Sea Public Library, Tewksbury Public Library, Rockport Public Library, Kimball Library, Beverly Public Library, Pollard Memorial Library, Nesmith Library, East Kingston Public Library, Laconia Public Library, Jaffrey Public Library, Dublin Public Library, Dover Public Library, Lane Memorial Library, Walpole Town Library, North Hampton Public Library, Etna Library, Hooksett Public Library, Belmont Public Library, Lynnfield Public Library, Newton Free Library, Groton Public Library.
