The Westwood Historical Society – in collaboration with the Westwood Public Library – will be hosting Anthony M. Sammarco as our speaker. A noted author and historian, he will talk about the Boston of 1918 and the disease that decimated the world population at that time – relating it to today’s Covid-19 epidemic.
