Virtual Third Thursday Talk: “Front Page News, a Journey Through Time” By Art Smith

Thursday, June 17th, 2021 7pm – 8pm (EST)

Since 1864 The Marietta Times has provided the citizens of Marietta with a way of learning about what is going on in their community and the world. Through floods, wars, celebrations and triumphs newspapers report news as it is happening. Join Art Smith as he explores not only some of the stories that made the front pages, but also how the newspaper itself has evolved over the last 150 years.
