The Greater Hartford Arts Council is co-sponsoring a series of lectures on the history of Hartford, in the belief that "newcomers as well as long-term residents of the region should share a base of knowledge about our core city and its environs."
Trinity College historian Andrew Walsh will deliver the first lecture, "The Changing Face of Hartford: From River’s Edge to Ribbons of Concrete," on Tuesday, May 16, at the Hartford Club, at 46 Prospect Street. A half-hour of socializing, with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, will precede the lecture, which will begin at 5:30 p.m. Admission is $35, with seating limited to the first 100 paid admissions.
