SOCIAL UPHEAVAL and the 1918 RED SOX
A talk by Sean Deveney
Thursday, March 29 at 7pm
Sean Deveney, local author and Lynn native, will be speaking about the "Social Upheaval and the 1918 Red Sox". The year 1918 was a tumultuous time in America; World War I was being fought with tremendous casualties on both sides, there was much economic uncertainty, and the world did not know what to expect from the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. No where was the tumult as great as in Massachusetts and in Lynn.
Sean Deveney is an award winning reporter. He has covered numerous major championships, including the NBA Finals, World Series, Super Bowl, NCAA tournament, and PGA Championship. He has also written about major sports figures such as Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, and Roger Clemens. Mr. Deveney has worked as a reporter for the Sporting News and is the author of The Original Curse which is about the 1918 World Series between the Cubs and Red Sox.
This event is free to members and $5.00 for non-members.
