In honor of the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Darien Library is hosting a lecture on the significance of the event.
Historian Mark Albertson will touch on the day that changed the course of American and global history. This program will serve as more than a simple rendition of the attack, but an examination of how and why it occurred.
This virtual event will take place on Tuesday, December 7. Register on Darien Library’s website at www.darienlibrary.org/event/5396.
