Author and journalist Stephanie Schorow writes history with a twist. Her most recent book, Drinking Boston: A History of the City and Its Spirits, takes readers on a literary pub crawl from Revolutionary watering holes to Prohibition speakeasies to today’s hot craft cocktail bars. But Drinking Boston is only her latest in a growing body of published works chronicling notorious figures, sensational stories and tragic events in the city’s history. In this multi-media presentation Schorow will discuss the joys and challenges of writing about Boston history and share her tips and techniques for researching topics as varied as George’s Island, the Cocoanut Grove fire, and Whitey Bulger. This evening will enthrall anyone with an interest in Boston history or in someday writing his or her own book. Co-sponsored by the Robbins Library and the Arlington Advocate.
