The Joyce S. Ahern Speaker Series
Joyce was a longtime member of the Literacy Volunteers of Washington County Board of Directors.
She was passionate about LVWC and could always be counted on to help students, raise funds, and recruit volunteers.
It all started in 2012 with a Stonington fisherman! James Arruda Henry was in his mid-nineties when he began learning to read and write. Despite living a successful life without literacy, James began studying and went on to write his first book, In a Fisherman’s Language. His life showed how the power of commitment, hard work, and
determination can redefine a person at any age—truly the mission of LVWC!

The setting was perfect at the United Theatre on Friday, June 3 as the audience enjoyed a lively and informative evening with Nathaniel Philbrick! Prompted by astute questions from fellow historian Ted Widmer, Philbrick spoke about the process of writing his most recent book, Travels with George: In Search of Washington and His Legacy, along with other related topics.
