Author Event at Chatham Library: Winifred Gallagher Discusses Her Book, “How the Post Office Created America”, Dec 2

Award-winning author & local resident, Winifred Gallagher, will talk about her most recent book, “How the Post Office Created America”. A masterful history of a long underappreciated institution, Gallagher examines the surprising role of the postal service in our nation’s political, social, economic, and physical development.

“How the Post Office Created America” is an ode to a little-heralded but flagship government enterprise. [Gallagher] reminds us … that the post office forged a communications revolution just as far-reaching as the later telegraph and internet revolutions.”—The New York Times Book Review

This presentation will be followed by a question and answer period, a book sale & signing, and a reception.
