Event description

Description

Dr. Jonathan Mercantini, Assistant Professor of History, Kean University will present a lecture entitled “Colonial N.J. from Contract to Revolution” on September 27, 2017 at 12:30 p.m. at the Lunchbox Learning Program at the Wayne Public Library, 461 Valley Road, Wayne, NJ. The program is free and open to the public.

The first part of the talk will explore the creation of ‘New Jersey’ including the development of East and West Jersey and the origins of some of the state’s most distinctive features that remain today. We will then examine the state’s growth as a center for agricultural development and as a key transportation network; we will also consider tensions surrounding land ownership and taxation on the eve of revolution.

Doors open at 12:00 p.m. for coffee, tea, and cookies served by the Friends of the Wayne Public Library. Feel free to bring your own lunch which should be finished by 12:30 p.m. when the program starts. The Wayne Public Library is a barrier free building. For further information, please call the library at 973-694-4272 ext. 5401 or email Deborah Rosenblatt, Adult Services Senior Librarian/Adult Programs at rosenblattd@waynepubliclibrary.org
