Kudos to MSC’s Summer Wisdom Committee chairs and board members Kelly Matzen and Mort Achter for assembling a compelling Summer Wisdom line-up that highlights Maine’s diversity and history. Sponsored by our friends at Sunnybrook Senior Living Community, this annual free lecture series is a highlight of the end of our spring academic year.

On June 1, Jody Bachelder’s talk is on Samoset and Indigenous-European interactions at the beginning of the 18th Century; June 8, Meadow Dibble tells the story of New England’s Twin Plagues and involvement in the slave trade; The Underground Railroad is the topic of Mark Alan Leslie’s June 15 talk; and on June 22, Erin Mangalam’s presentation covers New Mainers, asylum-seeking people with the focus on local response.
For the second year in a row, the virtual lectures will be on-line using Zoom on Wednesday afternoons from 1 to 2 p.m. They are free, but registration is required. After you register, you’ll receive a Zoom link which will take you to the lecture on the day and time it takes place. In addition to the presentation lecture, there will be time for questions.
