This Wednesday night at the Brookline Public Library, jigsaw puzzle historian Anne D. Williams will explore the story of jigsaws, including how residents of Brookline and the Boston area helped shape puzzle crazes from 1907 to 1910 and again during the Great Depression.
Williams is professor emerita of economics at Bates College. Will Shortz (NPR puzzle master and crossword editor of the New York Times) calls her “the world's foremost expert on jigsaw puzzles."
The program, part of the annual meeting of the Friends of the Brookline Library, begins at 7 pm at the main library at 361 Washington Street. More information.
