Nichols House Museum Lecture Series Presents:

William Martin, "The Back Bay: from Mudflat to Landfill to Modern Metropolis"

New England Historic Genealogical Society: 99-101 Newbury Street, Boston

Please join us and award-winning author William Martin for a talk on Boston's Back Bay. Using photographs he discovered while researching his first best seller, Back Bay, Martin will trace the development of this famous Boston neighborhood. Following the movement of the fictional Pratt family from the waterfront, over Pemberton Hill, and on to the Back Bay, Martin's photo presentation will examine the details in old and rare images of nineteenth-century Boston, revealing the city as you may never have seen it before.

The lecture will begin at 6:00pm, followed by a light reception.

Please note that this lecture is limited to 75 participants. Reserve your spot now!

About Our Lecturer:

William Martin is the award-winning New York Times bestselling author of eleven novels, a PBS documentary, book reviews, magazine articles, and a cult-classic horror movie, too. His first Peter Fallon novel, Back Bay, established him as "a master storyteller." He has been following the lives of the great and anonymous in American history ever since and has taken readers from the Pilgrims to 9/11. He was the 2005 recipient of the prestigious New England Book Award, given to an author "whose body of work stands as a significant contribution to the culture of the region." And in 2015, the USS Constitution Museum gave him the Samuel Eliot Morison Award for "patriotic pride, artful scholarship, and an eclectic interest in the sea and things maritime." He lives near Boston with his wife and has three grown children.
