Writing Island Histories

August 1, 2017 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM


Lecturer: Thomas Dresser

Enjoy an overview of the history of Martha’s Vineyard, from its ancient geological formation through the Native American heritage that survives today, to the settlement by white men in the 17th century. The story of the Vineyard today can be traced from the activities of our forebears. Touching on economic strategies, historical anomalies and social customs, the story of the Vineyard forms a unique block in the American quilt.
