#galvestonhistory Online Book Club

GTake a break from all of that social distancing and spend some time learning about timely topics and historic connections to Galveston Island. Our monthly book club will culminate in an online gathering where we discuss the topics and themes of each month’s selection. The titles chosen are also available in digital formats. These discussions are held on our official Facebook page at facebook.com/galvestonhistory. A list of upcoming books is below as well as an archive of past meetings.

As #galvestonhistory responds to the Coronavirus, we are taking the opportunity that social distancing gives us to connect closer to each of you. GHF will be offering numerous online learning and sharing opportunities. These will include Facebook live lectures, special Instagram takeovers, and more. View the full schedule of digital programming here.

Our staff and board are available to answer questions about Galveston’s architectural and maritime history, trace the lives of Galvestonians, and discuss current and upcoming historic preservation initiatives on the island and beyond. Please join us as we brace for our new “lives” and travel through unexplored territory.

GHF was formed as the Galveston Historical Society in 1871 and merged with a new organization formed in 1954 as a non-profit entity devoted to historic preservation and history in Galveston County. Over the last sixty years, GHF has expanded its mission to encompass community redevelopment, historic preservation advocacy, maritime preservation, coastal resiliency and stewardship of historic properties. GHF embraces a broader vision of history and architecture that encompasses advancements in environmental and natural sciences and their intersection with historic buildings and coastal life and conceives of history as an engaging story of individual lives and experiences on Galveston Island from the 19th century to the present day.
