In anticipation of Presidents Day, the acclaimed re-enactor George Baker will portray the father of American independence, John Adams, who will talk about his life and his views on American society in a humorous and inspiring performance entitled “Meet John Adams — A Lively and Revolutionary Conversation with America’s Second President.”
The event, to be held at the Weston Public Library on Sunday, Feb. 10, at 2, is being jointly sponsored by the Friends of the Weston Public Library and the Weston Historical Society.
Dressed in the clothes John Adams wore when sworn in as president in 1797, Mr. Baker has brought the iconic president to businesses, universities, libraries, national conventions, and venues like Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, the George H. W. Bush and the Presidential Library in Texas, He was also featured on the National Public Radio weekend program Studio 360.
A graduate of Columbia College and Columbia Law School, Mr. Baker practices law when not on the road as John Adams.
While geared for adults, “Meet John Adams” is suitable for families, even those with young children.
This program is both entertaining and educational; President Adams sings three songs accompanying himself on the piano and will take questions from the audience.
