QUINCY’S “LEGENDARY LOCALS”, JACK ENCARNACAO, GUEST SPEAKER

THURSDAY, MARCH 26, 7:00 PM, ADAMS ACADEMY 

Notable Quincyites from the past and present will be featured in our next program.  Area journalist Jack Encarnacao will highlight a number of the personalities from his new book, Quincy, Legendary Locals, a survey of individuals who’ve made an impact on Quincy from the earliest times to our own.  The presentation features national leaders like John Adams and John Hancock and stars like Lee Remick and Ruth Gordon, but it also focuses on the many people who have contributed to Quincy by helping others, by public service, by sheer force of personality, or by being unforgettable characters.  Everyone is welcome.  Admission is free.  Jack will do a book signing following the program.
