Celebrate John Quincy Adams's birthday at the second annual transcribe-a-thon! Immerse yourself in JQA's diary and help the Adams Papers Editorial Project make more of his 15,000-page diary available online. 

While the ability to read handwriting is necessary, no transcription experience is required. Bring your laptop or use one of ours. Come for the day or pop in for a little while. All are welcome!

Lunch and light refreshments will be provided. Registration is free and open to the public. For more information, or to register, contact Gwen Fries: gfries@masshist.org; 617-646-0556.
