To immigrants who battled hunger, political turmoil, religious persecution and rough seas, Liberty Enlightening the World, aka the Statue of Liberty, was a welcoming beacon on the shores of a new life. To most Americans it is a symbol of our homeland, our way of life.  Read more about the Statue of Liberty here.

Invisible to tourists, the Statue of Liberty's 25-foot-long (7.6-meter-long) left foot, pictured in 1984, brushes against a little-known detail that nevertheless loomed large in sculptor Frederic Bartholdi's design. Broken chains beneath the statue's toga symbolize freedom from oppression in general and the United States' abolition of slavery—just 20 years prior to the statue's dedication—in particular.

A second event will be held at Bookheads book store in Plymouth, 1-3pm on Friday, August.18th.
​See you there.
