A LOCAL WOMAN'S VOICE FROM THE 18TH CENTURY: THE REVOLUTIONARY WRITINGS OF EXPERIENCE WIGHT RICHARDSON

Sunday, January 11, 2015                                                                                                                           2:15 pm.
Wayland Public Library

We hear about men marching off to war in the 18th century to secure American independence, making momentous decisions at Town Meetings, and serving in town government. A few even attended college and entered the professions. But what about the women who made up at least half the population? What were their thoughts and actions? Fortunately we can gain some insight through the diary of Experience Wight Richardson, who lived in colonial Sudbury (today Wayland and Sudbury) during the turbulent years that led up to the American Revolution. Jane Sciacca will share Mrs. Richardsonís story in a discussion of womenís lives in colonial times.

Refreshments will be served..
