You’re invited to join the Antiquarian Society for a midday, midweek virtual gathering. Executive Director Anne Mason and Intern Sofie Koonce will discuss an exciting new project to digitize and transcribe manuscripts written by women in the Society’s archival collections. What can we learn about the everyday life of 19th-century Plymouth women from their letters? What challenges do we face when reading historic documents?
