Scrapbooking was the social media of the 19th century, offering a tangible keepsake made up of thoughts, hopes and dreams. Those who kept these books recorded their lives and the world around them, treasuring what mattered as priceless archives that also included social and personal struggles. Garvey will discuss these “unwritten histories” and encourages the audience to reflect upon their own scrapbook making and share their scrapbooks 50 years or older with the group. She’ll also invite all to leaf through her own collection. Free admission. Funded by a grant from the New York State Council on the Humanities.
