  • Community Event/Library program: HIDDEN HISTORY – Quakers & Puritans in 17th century
    7pm • Jackson Public Library. Presented by retired librarian Olga Morrill. Few people are aware of the shocking events that occurred in 17th-century New England. Olga Morrill will explore what colonial life was like for the first generation of American-born settlers.  She will discuss how the Puritans governed, and why they react so violently to the Religious Society of Friends.  By the end of her talk , we will find out who were the original proponents of religious toleration and equality on American soil. Olga Morrill recently published the book Vagabond Quakers: Northern Colonies. For more details, visit  www.vagabondquakers.wordpress.com. $5 donation is welcome to offset presenter expenses.
