6:30pm Talk: A People’s History of the New Boston With Jim Vrabel [The West End Museum
150 Staniford Street, Boston]
Although Boston today is a vibrant and thriving city, it was anything but that in the years following World War II. By 1950 it had lost a quarter of its tax base over the previous twenty-five years, and during the 1950s it would lose residents faster than any other major city in the country. Hear from Jim Vrabel, author of When in Boston: A Time Line & Almanac and Homage to Henry: A Dramatization of John Berryman’s “The Dream Songs.”

6:30pm Seat of Empire: Refurnishing Boston’s Historic Council Chamber
[Old South Meeting House: 310 Washington Street, at the corner of Milk Street, in downtown Boston] Paul Revere House: The Council Chamber in Boston’s Town House (now the Old State House), where the Royal Governor of Massachusetts met with members of his Council, was once an important administrative center for the British Empire in North America.
