You’re invited to discover the fascinating history that surrounds you here in Pennsylvania!

PA History: Read It, See It is a new series of virtual programs presented by the Pennsylvania State Library in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. Each month features a fun and factual investigation into one of the Trails of History sites. These programs will provide suggestions for books related to each topic that you may find at your local public library, examples of site-specific rare and historic books from the vaults of the State Library’s unique Rare Collections Library, and a special insider virtual tour of Pennsylvania’s Historic Sites and Museums. Let us inspire you as you plan seasonal road trips across our State!

This free, virtual series is appropriate for learners and explorers of all ages and will be held the third Thursday of each month from 12pm to 1pm.

You must register online in advance to attend these events. Online registration forms associated with each event are included within the event listing. Upon registering, you will receive a link to attend via the Zoom platform.

Each session will be recorded and will be added to the State Library’s Lunch-and-Learn archive online shortly after the event.
