Recently, the city of Boston has been looking back underground — and right towards Joe McKendry’s Beneath the Streets of Boston: Building America’s First Subway.
In January, the PBS Documentary “The Race Underground” brought attention to America’s first subway system, reflecting on the race between Boston and New York that was eventually won here in Massachusetts.
Now, as a part of the Imagine Boston 2030 campaign, Beneath The Streets of Boston has been selected to be one of the 10 children’s books featured for Boston’s 400th Anniversary!
While the 400th Anniversary is some time away, you can jump into celebrations early with two events coming up this Spring. Catch Joe McKendry speaking about Beneath The Streets of Boston at these public libraries around the South Shore:
- Monday, April 24th from 6:00 to 8:00pm at the Hingham Public Library
- Thursday, April 27th at 7:00pm at the Weymouth Public Library
