Chapin's 12th annual Gilder Lehrman Lecture will take place on Tuesday, January 29 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Assembly Room. This year, we will welcome historian David W. Blight who will speak on his new book "Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom," recently named one of the 10 best books of 2018 by the New York Times. We are pleased to offer copies of the book for sale that evening and are thrilled that Professor Blight will be available to sign at 5:45pm and again briefly at 7:30pm. The event is open to all members of the Chapin community including students, parents, faculty and alumnae.
