Get to Know the “Real” Philly

Which famous artist may have been Philadelphia’s first nude model? Who stole the first book from the Library Company of Pennsylvania? Who was the Philadelphia Revolutionary War captain who terrorized the English in their backyard? These and other questions are answered by Philadelphia historian and tour guide Jim Murphy in his recently Temple University-published book, Real Philly History, Real Fast. Join us to hear more as Jim gives us a fun-filled tour through little-known corners of our city’s history!
