Join the Rhode Island Historical Society on Nov. 14th for our 191st Annual Meeting. RIHS members are encouraged to join us for RIHS board elections and a special speaking program with writer and filmmaker G. Wayne Miller.

Because our by-laws require that 10% of the Society's membership either be personally present or return their proxies for the Annual Meeting to have a quorum, we ask you make every effort to vote for board elections, online or by mail, no later than Nov. 8th, if you have any doubts about your ability to attend the meeting.

Our guest speaker this year, G. Wayne Miller, is an American writer and filmmaker.

In the fall of 2011, Miller wrote The War on Terror: Coming Home, a seven-part series about returning veterans of the post-9/11 wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, published in the Providence Journal. The Documentary, Coming Home, winner of an Edward R. Murrow Award, was also nominated for a New England Emmy in the outstanding documentary category by the regional chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Miller will show excerpts from the film to illustrate his talk.
