In celebration of International Peace Day, join us for an illustrated talk with Thomas M. Paine about a war's effect on the lives of five siblings, including his ancestor General Charles Jackson Paine who led a company of black soldiers in the Civil War and pioneering peace activist Robert Treat Paine. The title is based on Tom Paine's forthcoming book which tells the story of his own great-grandfather and other men and women of determination and valor who were vitally engaged in the issues of their time over three centuries. Interactive audience discussion and light refreshments to follow.


Thomas M. Paine is the author of Growing Paines, the Stonehurst guidebook and Cities with Heart. He is the founder of Boston !NSP!RES, a consultancy focusing on the intersection of local history, historic preservation and public space design.
