History in the making…a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process in book writing, filmmaking, art, and poetry.
Despite the pandemic, the 400th anniversary commemoration continues with great programming, including a fascinating new virtual series: Plymouth 400 CONVERSATIONS. You’ll hear the inspiring stories of authors, filmmakers, artists, and poets who discuss how the 400th anniversary commemoration influenced their work.
While plans for the 400th anniversary began many years before 2020, so did the creative efforts of the guests who were inspired by the Plymouth 400 story. Plymouth 400 has joined with PACTV (Plymouth Area Community Television) to showcase a few in the Plymouth 400 CONVERSATIONS series, airing from January to April 2021. Check back for updates to the schedule below, as well as our Signature Events page for program details.
Guest: D. Brenton Simons, President and CEO of American Ancestors and the New England Historic Genealogical Society.
Simons will discuss the newly-annotated 400th-anniversary edition of the personal journal of Pilgrim Governor William Bradford – Of Plimoth Plantation.
