“The Families, the Voyage and the Founding of America”

This lecture is free and open to the public

rebecca fraser mayflower.jpg

Rebecca Fraser sheds new light about the Mayflower and on a family caught up in all the perils of crossing the ocean and settling in the wilderness of a new land.

But the story did not end there. All settlers had to become linguists, traders, and explorers, and yet not forget their roots and customs from the old country. With the aid of exciting contemporary documents, Mrs. Fraser brings the Winslow Family to life, a family made less ordinary by their responses to the challenges of the New World.

Written with the pace of an epic, this is a story that is both national but intimate and human, as the Winslows made the painful decisions that ensured their survival in America.

This event is sponsored by the Marshfield Historical Triangle and will be hosted at The Daniel Webster Estate (238 Webster St, Marshfield). This lecture is free to the public.

REBECCA FRASER, a long-time Winslow Association Member, has worked as a researcher, an editor, and a journalist, and has written for many publications, including Tatler, Vogue, The Times, and The Spectator. She is the author of “The Brontës” and “The Story of Britain”.
