Local author and historian Brian Griffin will discuss his latest book, The Donovan Diaries, in this virtual presentation. John Joseph Donovan was a man born of common clay who lived the American dream, rising to great heights of achievement, wealth, and community affection. Donovan lived a storied life illuminated in this fascinating book by the discovery of his diaries long hidden in an old steamer trunk in Sag Harbor, New York.
Griffin is the author of local history books My Darling Anna, Boulevard Park, Treasures from the Trunk, and Fairhaven, A History.
The format of this presentation is via YouTube livestream. A link to access the livestream will be emailed to registrants the day of the event. You can also visit the Museum’s YouTube Channel to watch the program.
