Lowell’s water-powered textile mills catapulted the nation – including immigrant families and early female factory workers – into an uncertain new industrial era. Nearly 200 years later, the changes that began there still reverberate in our shifting global economy and serve as a living testament to the dynamic human story of the industrial revolution. Led by National Park Ranger Emma Mitchell.

Enjoy an armchair tour of the Phillips House, a famous Massachusetts property preserved by Historic New England. In 1821, four intact rooms from an earlier house were transported by ox sled to Salem’s fashionable Chestnut Street to form the core of a new Federal-style mansion being built by Captain Nathaniel West. Nearly a century later, Anna Phillips bought the house and launched a fourteen-month renovation. When the Phillips family moved in, they brought with them a family collection that spans five generations. Learn about the world of the Phillips family and their staff during the early decades of the twentieth century and the history of the house on Chestnut Street. Led by Abigail Stewart, North Shore Regional Administrator at Historic New England.

RECORDING NOTE: This program will be recorded. All registrants will receive the recording via email within 48 hours of the program.

Picture of Captain Greg Ketchen (Retired) Virtual: A Brief History of the Coast Guard with Captain Greg Ketchen (Retired)

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Webinar via email.**  
Massachusetts is the birthplace of the Coast Guard. America’s oldest seagoing service has an exceptionally rich history and those who have served in the Coast Guard here in Massachusetts have made significant contributions to that history. The U.S. Lighthouse Establishment, U.S. Lifesaving Service, Bureau of Marine Inspection and Navigation, and the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service were all predecessors to today’s modern Coast Guard. From the Departments of Treasury, Transportation to Homeland Security, this federal service has evolved into an organization with dozens of missions, some of which may surprise. Most are aware of the role of Coast Guard men and women as first responders, law enforcement officers and boating safety experts but few know that some are oceanographers, combat veterans, arctic explorers and even astronauts.

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Webinar via email.**  
We are so excited to be chatting with Historical Mystery author, C.S. Harris! We have gotten more requests for this conversation than most any other author so we're thrilled to be making this a reality. As you may know, C.S. (aka Candice Proctor) is the prolific writer of the Sebastian St. Cyr series. We're also celebrating the book birthday of the 18th in this series, "Who Cries for the Lost?" - with a title like that, don't you just want to run out and read every book, starting with "What Angels Fear"? :)

Special thanks to Ashland Public Library for putting this event together.

Virtual: Find More Birds: 111 Surprising Ways to Spot Birds Wherever You Are

Heather Wolf with book jacket for Find More BirdsVirtual: Author Heather Wolf Discusses: "Find More Birds: 111 Surprising Ways to Spot Birds Wherever You Are" Again.

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Webinar via email.**  
We had so much fun discussing birding with Heather, that we had to do it again. As we celebrate Earth Month (really, year!) we thought this would be the perfect time to bring her back. Once again, Author Heather Wolf will be discussing her latest book "Find More Birds: 111 Surprising Ways to Spot Birds Wherever You Are". It will be a fascinating conversation about being in the moment and noticing the wonderful and varied birds around us. And, this time, we'll focus more on Q&A, although we hope that Heather will share more amazing pics of her backyard birds with us!
