Joanna Tebbs Young: Lilian Baker Carlisle

Event date: 
Wednesday, September 13, 2017 - 7:00pm

Join Joanna Tebbs Young for a talk on her new book, Lilian Baker Carlisle.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Overlooking Lake Champlain in the Old North End of Burlington, Vermont, sits a house. Inside that house is a closet. Inside that closet, a lifetime. Piled from floor to ceiling, 80 years' worth of scrapbooks, dating from 1925 to 2006, are just one legacy of Burlington, Vermont, historian and writer Lilian Baker Carlisle. Assistant to Electra Havemeyer Webb of Shelburne Museum, author of "the most accurate and complete" book on early Vermont silver, a champion for equality and the environment, a politician and preservationist, she was a woman ahead of her time. Lilian Baker Carlisle: Vermont Historian, Burlington Treasure is her story.
