Weaving a Tale: A Book Born of Oral History, Primary Sources, and Research

September 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

Researcher Faith Gregor will discuss her new book Courage Says “Keep On”. The book illuminates a fascinating period of American history through the eyes of her grandmother, Rachel Whitcomb, who worked at three different New England settlement houses from 1913 to 1922, including Providence’s Federal Hill House. Settlement houses were sites that provided resources and support for newly arrived immigrants.

To tell this engaging story, Faith Gregor undertook a decade-long research journey to uncover every possible document concerning her grandmother Rachel, starting at the Rhode Island Historical Society and the Providence Public Library.
