Book Talk: “Boston’s Orange Line”
Since 1901, the configuration of the rail system Bostonians now know as the MBTA’s Orange Line has evolved in response to changes in the city, society, and technology. In their recent book about the Orange Line, Andrew Elder and Jeremy C. Fox explore the line’s role in the lives of Bostonians and how it and other rail lines have changed alongside broader trends in urban living. In this presentation, Elder and Fox will use photos tracing the history and paths of the line to discuss the recent history of Boston and evolving attitudes toward city living. Signed copies of Boston’s Orange Line will be available for $21.99. Cash and credit cards are accepted. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
