A Slice of Boston History

What do Harvey Parker, Mark Twain, Eleanor Roosevelt, Charles Dickens, Boston Cream Pie, John F. Kennedy, French opera, Emeril Lagasse, John Wilkes Booth, Ho Chi Minh, and Parker House Rolls all have in common? The iconic and historic Omni Parker House‐the subject of House Historian Susan Wilson’s fascinating lecture, “A Slice of Boston History.” Please join us at the Senior Center on Thursday, September 15 at 1:00 pm for this exciting talk.
