BEYOND THE BOOK CLUB: PRESENTATION ON ABIGAIL ADAMS 
Thursday, February 20, 2014, 06:00pm - 07:00pm 
At Pequot Library 

Abigail Adams is known to us as the wife of John Adams. However, Abigail Adams corresponded with her husband on many matters including government and politics. Dr. Mona Garcia shares with us Abigail's story as wife and mother, an extraordinary woman in her own right. Presenter, Dr. Mona Garcia, taught European history at the college level. She has presented conference papers in the United States and Great Britain and has publications in her field of English history, one of which has been included in the Bibliography of British and Irish History (formally the Royal Historical Society Bibliography). This year, Beyond the Book Club, will focus on Extraordinary Women. Fairfield is in the midst of preparing for its 375th anniversary along with the 125th anniversary of the founding of Pequot Library. Through her generous gift, an extraordinary woman, Mrs. Virginia Marquand Monroe, built the Pequot Library on her estate and gave Pequot Library to the community to be "Free as air to all."
