CLOVER ADAMS: A GILDED AND HEARTBREAKING LIFE
Marian “Clover” Hooper Adams was the granddaughter of Captain William Sturgis and the wife of historian and author Henry Adams. A Boston Brahmin who moved in the elite social circles of Boston and Washington DC, Clover took up photography just before she turned 40, but her artistic journey was cut tragically short by her suicide three years later. Join author Natalie Dykstra for a discussion of Adams’ life and photography and a reading from the newly published book, “Clover Adams: A Gilded and Heartbreaking Life.” This talk is free, but advanced registration is requested.

More About Sturgis Library
Sturgis Library, the oldest library structure in the United States and one of the oldest houses on the Cape, was built in 1644 for the founder of Barnstable, Reverend John Lothrop.
The original library structure contains "The Lothrop Room." It has a wood beam ceiling and authentic colored wide-board floors. In this room, Reverend Lothrop's bible- the one he used while holding religious services back in the 1600's- is on display.
The Sturgis Library is a historic treasure on Old King's Highway, 6A in Barnstable Village, and has one of the first maritime collections on the East Coast and the Lothrop Genealogy Collection.
