Westborough: Library to host talk on ‘Westborough’s Forgotten Documents’

Westborough – The community is invited to discover “Westborough’s Forgotten Documents” Sunday, Feb. 1, at 2 p.m., at the Westborough Public Library, 55 West Main St. The snow date is Sunday, Feb. 8, at 2 p.m. The event, sponsored by The Friends of Westborough, Inc., is free and open to the public.

 

Program presenter Anthony Vaver is a consulting archivist for the Westborough Public Library. He has written two books on early American crime and is the former Special Collections and Humanities Librarian at Brandeis University. He has a Ph.D. in English Literature from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and an M.L.S. from Rutgers University, and lives in Westborough with his wife and children. He will be showing and discussing some of the unique and important historical items that were discovered in the town hall vault.

 

Before the Westborough Town Hall was closed for renovations, a number of items from our town’s history were found in the vault – some dating back to Revolutionary War times, and some that pre-date the founding of Westborough in 1717.  Many of the items in the collection will be digitized in the coming months by the Digitization Lab at the Boston Public Library, and this is the first public showing of the documents.

Westborough: ‘Family Legends…The Charbonneau Letter’ author at Tatnuck Bookseller

Westborough – Joseph W. Bebo, the author of “Family Legends…The Charbonneau Letter,” will be at Tatnuck Bookseller Sunday, Feb. 8, from 1-3 p.m. Not only is The Charbonneau Letter a rousing adventure tale, but a story of how a family spans the gulf of time with their memories and their dreams, to build a country and a legacy – a family’s history brought to life.

 

The Charbonneau Letter is a historical fiction of Bebo’s ancestor, Toussaint Charbonneau, who was on the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and his wife, Sacagawea. Based on actual events that took place during the famous expedition of 1804 – 1806, the book explores the relationship between Charbonneau and his young wife, recounting their journey together across the great unknown, and it follows the lives of their descendants, fictional and real, through modern times.
