Now he’s starting a series that will focus on the US Presidents of the 20th Century. It begins with Rough Rider and conservationist Theodore Roosevelt.
Foster—who, in addition to being a librarian, has a doctorate degree in history—will discuss one of our country’s most fascinating presidents at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 19, at our Main Branch.
The talk is free and open to all. You can register to attend online or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247.
If you’re interested in history, Foster will also discuss the Easter Rising of 1916 at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 21, at the Concord Township Community Center—7671 Auburn Road in Concord Township.
On Easter Monday, April 24, 1916, a group of Irish patriots staged a rebellion against British rule in Ireland. Although it failed, the Easter Rising opened the door to Irish independence within a decade. Learn about the rebels and their reasons during Foster’s lecture.
The Easter Rising talk is also free to attend. To register, call Suzy Cobb at (440) 639-4650.
