Join Lowell National Historical Park for A Short History of Social Media in Lowell: Bloggers, Tweeters, and Facebookers. This event will be a panel discussion with the audience followed by a book signing by the authors

Since the mid-2000s, Lowell and the world have been disrupted in good and bad ways by the coming of new media forms that have empowered individuals and communities. Listen to the founders of the popular RichardHowe.com blog talk about this ongoing phenomenon. Featuring Richard Howe Jr., Tony Accardi, Marie Sweeney, and Paul Marion along with audience discussion. If you do it or read it or look at it in the social media universe, join in this conversation---or live-Tweet it even.

"History As It Happens: Citizen Bloggers in Lowell, Mass.," covering the first ten years of the Howe blog, will be on sale for $20 and the authors will sign books.

This program is free and open to the public. Parking is free in the National Park Service lot at 304 Dutton Street.
