Wadhams Library offers John Brown lecture

WADHAMS - The Wadhams Free Library will kick off its spring Wednesdays in Wadhams lecture series at 7:30 p.m. March 24 with an illustrated talk by Andy Buchanan, a professor of history at UVM who lives in Whallonsburg.

The lecture, entitled "John Brown: Adirondack Abolitionist," comes as activists and historians across the region, including Buchanan, are rallying to keep the John Brown farm in North Elba open as a State Historic Site. Buchanan will discuss John Brown's North Country roots, as well as his continuing relevance to contemporary social problems, including civil rights, global slavery, and the phenomenon of "principled violence." This event is free and open to the public, and questions will be welcome.
