Beacon Hill Village PRESENTS "Conversations With Anthony Sammarco," Monday, September 13 at 5:30 PM via Zoom.
Anthony Sammarco will discuss his new book Beacon Hill Through Time -- a deep dive into the history of our beloved neighborhood of curious topography and iconic red brick row houses that has embraced people of all walks of life since the 19th century. Mr. Sammarco will go beyond stereotypical depictions in chronicling the rich histories of the African American, Jewish immigrant, and Boston Brahmin communities that have populated this Trimount of Boston over the last centuries.
Called the “Balzac of Boston History” by the Boston Globe, Anthony Mitchell Sammarco is a noted historian and author of over 80 books on the history and development of Boston, and he lectures widely on the history and development of his native city. He commenced writing in 1995, and his books Lost Boston, The History of Howard Johnson’s: How A Massachusetts Soda Fountain Became a Roadside Icon, Jordan Marsh: New England’s Largest Store and The Baker Chocolate Company: A Sweet History have made bestsellers lists.
He received the Bulfinch Award from the Doric Dames of the Massachusetts State House, the Washington Medal from Freedom Foundation, a lifetime achievement from both the Victorian Society and the Gibson House Museum. He was elected a Fellow of the Massachusetts Historical Society, is a member of the Boston Author’s Club, a proprietor of the Boston Athenaeum and the St. Botolph Club in Boston.
