Join us for a speaking presentation by Connie Hertzberg Mayo, author of "The Island of Worthy Boys".  This historical fiction novel is a moving tale of two boys who fall on hard times in nineteenth-century Boston. Hunger and desperation help to forge a bond between the two that is nearly indestructible. When the unthinkable happens, they go into hiding at the Thompson Island Farm and Trade School where their friendship is put to the ultimate test. The Island of Worthy Boys will captivate both fans of Boston history and lovers of historical fiction.

Connie Hertzberg Mayo was the recipient of the 2016 Gold Medal for Best Regional Fiction by the Independent Publisher Book Awards.
