On Thursday, October 19th, the State Library will host author Steven A. Rosenberg, who will speak about his latest book, Middle Class Heroes: Voices from Boston's Suburbs.
The State Library of Massachusetts invites you to join us at noon on Oct. 19 to hear author and journalist Steven A. Rosenberg give a talk about his latest book, Middle Class Heroes: Voices from Boston's Suburbs. This recently published book is a collection of the author's most intriguing articles from his 2001-2016 tenure at the Boston Globe.
Middle Class Heroes presents the personal stories of everyday people living in Salem, Somerville, Lynn, and other Boston suburbs. These vignettes feature individuals from all walks of life, including a WWI veteran from Swampscott, a fisherman from Gloucester, and even Mr. Rosenberg’s father, Sam, who ran a deli in Chelsea and whose portrait graces the cover of Middle Class Heroes.
Prior to his work at the Boston Globe, Mr. Rosenberg served as the editor of The Jewish Advocate and also worked as a documentary filmmaker whose works have been featured on such media outlets as PBS, CBS, and ESPN. After having spent fifteen years as a reporter, columnist, and photographer for the Boston Globe, Mr. Rosenberg is now the editor and publisher of the Jewish Journal.
Mr. Rosenberg will be offering copies of Middle Class Heroes for sale and signing at the conclusion of his talk at the State Library. To register, please visit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Rosenberg-SLM
