Public Lectures, Fall 2018: mark your calendars

Note that in the fall the Society’s monthly meetings and lectures will be returning to the Lion’s Centre for the 2018-2019 season.  We had planned to use the Peterborough Library but will be unable to do so because of the acoustics problem in the refurbished community room. The monthly meetings and lectures are on the third Tuesday of the month; September, October, November, January, February, March and May at 7:30 p.m., Lion’s Community Centre, 347 Ashburnham Street.



Tuesday, 18 September: Erik Hanson, “Heritage in the Age of Climate Change.” Erik Hanson is Heritage Resources Coordinator for the City of Peterborough.
Tuesday, 16 October: Kevin Siena, “Jail Fever: A History of Typhus and Terror.” Kevin Siena is Associate Professor of History at Trent University and has published books on the history of disease.

Tuesday, 20 November: Don Willcock, “Peterborough Remembers Her Fallen: The Citizens' War Memorial.” Don Willcock is a Peterborough historian, archival researcher and contractor, and Past President of the Peterborough Historical Society.

Best wishes for a pleasant summer!
