Event Details

The effects of a 1721 smallpox epidemic in New England is the topic of a free talk by local author Tony Williams Thursday, July 15 at 7 p.m. in the Schell Room at the Williamsburg Library, 515 Scotland Street.

The immediate effect of the outbreak in Massachusetts was nearly 6,000 people dead or disfigured.  The epidemic also triggered a bitter scientific and religious debate between supporters and opponents of the new practice of inoculation. Author Tony Williams traces the spread of the disease, and the permanent political effect the fight would have on America.   For more information on this free presentation, visit www.wrl.org or call (757) 259-4050.

Williamsburg Regional Library's Adult Services Division organizes the ongoing Third Thursdays @ Your Library series featuring subjects of local interest, author talks, hobbies and pastimes.  The programs take place monthly at the Williamsburg Library.

 

Author Tony Williams discusses 18th century smallpox epidemic
