Museums on the Green in Falmouth is hosting a free Virtual Talk Series online through July. More than a dozen talks are planned with leading authors and historians.

Topics include American heroes like Harriet Tubman and George Washington; notorious rogues like George Remus: Prohibition’s “Bootleg King”; and incredible true-life events such as the Nazi plot to kill the Allied world leaders at a not-so-secret meeting in Tehran during World War II.

“Our historical talks have been an integral part of our programming for years,” said Mark Schmidt, the Museums’ executive director. “Instead of waiting for the green light to reopen, we decided to host the talks online to open up a new way of learning and spending time together.”

The series begins the week of June 8 with the first talk on Tuesday, June 9, at 7 PM. Casey Sherman will talk about his new book “Hunting Whitey: The Inside Story of the Capture & Killing of America’s Most Wanted Crime Boss.” Mr. Sherman is best known for his book “The Finest Hours,” which was made into a movie in 2016. On Thursday, June 11, at 7 PM James B. Conroy will discuss his book “Jefferson’s White House: Monticello on the Potomac.”

Other talks are planned for later in the month.

Registration details are available on the Museums’ website. There is no charge, but pre-registration is required to access the talks through Zoom.

Those interested can purchase companion books for each talk from the Museums’ co-host, Eight Cousins Bookstore. Order at eightcousins.com or call 508-548-5548.
