Sharing and celebrating our shared literary heritage
Pierce Performance Series
The Pierce Performance Series was launched to raise the visibility of the Boston Public Library’s Special Collections through free public performances and lectures. For our inaugural event we commemorated the 150th anniversary of the National Peace Jubilee. Subsequent performances have honored the historic words of the abolitionists, celebrated women's right to vote, and examined the life of one of America's first rebels, Thomas Paine.
