Museums On The Green to Hold Six Talks in September

FALMOUTH – Next month, the Falmouth Museum on the Green will host six talks covering a wide range of topics, including the Women’s Suffrage Movement, centuries-old destruction of Lisbon, and secret military strategies of World War II.

Museum Executive Director, Mark Schmidt, says that the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote has inspired several news books, including “Mr. President, How Long Must We Wait?” by author Tina Cassidy, who will give a talk this fall.

“The day before Woodrow Wilson took the presidential oath of office in 1913, he was upstaged by twenty-five-year old Alice Paul and 8,000 suffragettes, who marched down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House,” Schmidt said.

“Tina Cassidy’s book weaves together the compelling story of the little-known suffragette leader and the well-known president.”

Other speakers include Barbara Berenson speaking on revolutionary women reformers in Massachusetts, author Mark Molesky speaking on a 1755 earthquake that devastated the western world, and local historian Michael McNaught speaking on interesting details from World War II.  

Admission to each talk is $10, $5 for members of the Falmouth Historical Society, and are held at the Museums’ Cultural Center on its campus located at 55 & 65 Palmer Avenue in Falmouth.

The schedule for the talks are as followed:

Tuesday, September 10, 7:00 p.m.: “Anxiety Warrior: A Scared Man’s Path to Success and Happiness,” with Brian Beneduce

Saturday, September 14, 2 p.m.: “Massachusetts in the Women’s Suffrage Movement,” with Barbara Berenson

Thursday, September 19, 7 p.m.: “The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs,” with Katherine Howe

Saturday, September 21, 2 p.m.: “This Gulf of Fire: The Destruction of Lisbon,” with Mark Molesky
