Author of thefull-color and thoroughly researched "Fenway Park: The Centennial," Saul Wisnia shares original commentary by three generations of Boston Red Sox players and fans, plus little-known stories about our favorite stadium. President & CEO of Zoo New England, John Linehan, then reveals how radically Boston's zoos — and zoology itself — have changed in a century, while describing our furry friends who live there now. Finally, the Fairmont Copley Plaza's Regional Vice President and General Manager, Paul Tormey, showcases the history and trivia behind Boston's jewel of hospitality in the Back Bay. Join us for a conversation on Boston's three incredible attractions that only comes once in a hundred years.
