Augusta’s own Bill Kirby will be here to present WE WERE THERE: CHRONICLING AUGUSTA HISTORY FOR 230 YEARS.
One of Augusta’s oldest institutions, the Augusta Chronicle, has been documenting local and national news day after day, month after month, year after year for over two centuries. Please join us as Bill Kirby explores the story of “The South’s Oldest Newspaper,” and its place within the history of American journalism. In conjunction with the program, a series of historic photographs taken by Chronicle journalists will be on exhibit throughout the month of September on the first floor of the Headquarters Library.
