Peabody Historical Society features a lecture by Anne Barrett titled “Coast to Coast Flight in 48 hrs. 1929,” about the inaugural air and rail trip that departed from New York City on July 7, 1929, and arrived in Los Angeles 48 hours later. Barrett's lecture is based on a diary left by her great-aunt who was one of the privileged passengers on the trip. Admission is free for Peabody Historical Society members and $5 for nonmembers. The program begins at 1 p.m. at the Felton-Smith Historic Site on Felton Street in Peabody. For more information, call 978-531-0805 or visit www.peabodyhistorical.org.

Historian Ed Brown presents “The Tenant Farmers of Hale House,” an exploration of the unknown period in one of Beverly’s most historic properties. The “H-men” — Hale Hilton, Peter Hill and Alden Harris — lived in the ancient house with their families, and farmed the land for some 60 years between the last of the Hale family occupants and the property’s conversion to the summer estate of their Bancroft family descendents. Learn more at 7 p.m. at the Beverly Historical Society, 117 Cabot St. Admission is free for Society members and a $5 suggested donation for nonmembers. For more information, visit http://www.beverlyhistory.org.

Parenting expert Meg Akabas will share her new book, “52 Weeks of Parenting Wisdom,” at 7 p.m. as part of the JCC's Jewish Book Month series. Akabas will outline the strategies that help busy parents make attainable changes in parenting, week by week. The free event takes place at Cohen Hillel Academy, 6 Community Road, Marblehead. Details and reservations are available at http://www.jccns.org/jewish-book-month-2/, or 781-639-2880.
