“Water, Water Everywhere, the Anniversary of the 1912 Flood” will be given by Carol Waggoner-Angleton, an Augusta State University Reese Library archivist. The devastation caused by the flood and initial efforts to control flooding will be part of the talk.

The lecture begins at 12:30 p.m., and is part of the Brown Bag History Series, a monthly educational lecture series. Cost is free for members and $3 for non-members. Participants are encouraged to bring a lunch. The museum will provide beverages.
