Pulitzer-Prize winning historian and author David McCullough, a longtime West Tisbury resident, will be speaking at the Grange Hall in July for his only public event on the Vineyard this summer.

Mr. McCullough will be talking about his new book The Wright Brothers on Tuesday, July 14 at 7 p.m. The evening is a fundraiser for the West Tisbury Library Foundation.

Mr. McCullough and his wife, Rosalee, have long been supporters of the West Tisbury Free Public Library. In July 2014, the community room at the newly-renovated library was dedicated to the McCulloughs.

The Wright Brothers tells the behind-the-scenes story of flight pioneers Wilbur and Orville Wright. Mr. McCullough will talk about the book and also about the research that went into it.

Tickets for the July event are $100 for general seating; reservations are required. A limited number of premium seats are available for $500, and those ticket holders will be invited to a reception with Mr. McCullough. Call 508-696-9539 for tickets.
