Book Talk: Unearthed

May 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Who was here before us? In whose footsteps are we now walking? And what—if anything—did they leave behind? These are the questions that Steven L. Bridge, Professor at Saint Joseph’s College, was determined to answer. To do so, Bridge began digging—both literally and figuratively—into the campus’s past... all the way back to 1773. In the process, he uncovered a long forgotten and deeply buried history filled with storied artifacts and remarkable predecessors. Unearthed chronicles Bridge’s journey of discovery and showcases some of the best of our campus’s astonishingly rich heritage—one that crosses paths with the likes of George Washington, John Adams, John Quincy Adams, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Rudolph Valentino, and Babe Ruth, among others.

Free for MHS Members; $5 general admission.
