    MONTPELIER — A free program on the life and work of Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, will be presented May 15 from noon to 1 p.m. at the Vermont History Museum in Montpelier.

    Researcher Kurt Morris of The Mary Baker Eddy Library in Boston will also discuss the history of the Christian Science movement in Vermont, according to the Vermont Historical Society. The event is part of the Third Thursday series on historic topics at the museum.

    The presentation will show that Eddy was a woman deserving of a place in history, said the historical society’s public programs coordinator, Amanda Gustin, in a news release. “She lived during a time when women had few options outside of marriage and virtually no voice to speak out in public. Eddy challenged those restrictions and helped all women make important strides forward,” Gustin said.

    People are invited to bring a bag lunch to the museum while attending the program.

    For more information, visit vermonthistory.org or contact Gustin at amanda.gustin@state.vt.us or 828-2180. The museum is accessible for people with handicaps.
