“Egghead Evenings” are open discussion groups focusing on
policy-related or historical topics featuring experts who live in or
frequent Midcoast Maine.
Heather Cox Richardson, Professor of History at Boston College, will lead a discussion about the two major political parties and how they got where they are today. She is the author of “To Make Men Free: The History of the Republican Party” (Basic Books, 2014) which examines the GOP’s 160 years of twists and turns in accessible prose sharing comprehensive research.
Professor Richardson teaches the history of the American West in addition to courses on U.S. politics and economics, specifically during the Nineteenth century. According to her bio on the BC website, “She is currently working on an intellectual history of American politics and a graphic treatment of the Reconstruction Era.” Richardson grew up in Maine and is a part-time resident of Round Pond.
The Lincoln County Democratic Committee’s Victory 2018 Campaign Office is located in the second floor of the Overlook Building at 521 Main St. in Damariscotta. There is plenty of parking and easy access from the rear of the building located across from Round Top Ice Cream.
