Author Stephen Puleo will host a coffee chat at the Georgetown Peabody Library on Saturday at 10 a.m. as a fundraiser for the American Association of University Women and The Friends of the Georgetown Peabody Library.

Proceeds will help to fund a scholarship for a local college student to attend the National Conference of College Women Student Leaders. The Friends of the Georgetown Peabody Library will use their share of the profits to buy museum passes and fund community programs.

Puleo will discuss his latest book, “The Caning,” in which he relates the story of the events of May 22, 1856 “when pro-slavery Congressman Preston S. Brooks of South Carolina strode into the United States Senate chamber and began beating anti-slavery Senator Charles Sumner, of Massachusetts, with a gold-topped walking cane, rendering him unconscious.”

Admission is $12 per person or $20 per couple. Guests can enjoy homemade baked goods, fruit, coffee, tea and juice. To reserve a seat, call 978-352-8931 or email
