DAMARISCOTTA, ME, July 11, 2018 – The Lincoln County Democratic Committee (LCDC) continues its series of “Egghead Evenings” on Monday, July 30, 7 – 8:30 p.m. at their Campaign Office at 521 Main St. in Damariscotta.
Joseph Rosenbloom, author of Redemption: Martin Luther King Jr.’s Last 31 Hours (Beacon Press, 2018), will lead the July 30 discussion. Rosenbloom will be available to sign copies of his newly published book available through most booksellers, including Sherman’s Maine Coast Book Shops in Damariscotta and Boothbay Harbor.
King’s reputation as a credible, non-violent leader of the civil rights movement was in jeopardy just as he was launching the Poor Peoples Campaign. Rosenbloom will lead a discussion on the pressures facing King in his final hours, and what happened to his Poor Peoples Campaign as a result.
Rosenbloom is an award-winning journalist who has been a staff reporter for the Boston Globe, an investigative reporter for Frontline, and a senior editor for Inc. magazine. He has written for the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, American Prospect, among other publications, and lives in Newton, MA, and summers in Boothbay Harbor.
Egghead Evenings are open discussion groups focusing on policy-related or historical topics featuring experts who live in or frequent Midcoast Maine. The series continues in August and September with topics from climate change to the economy. Visit http://lincolncountydemocrats.com/events for a full schedule.
