NATHANIEL PHILBRICK

TUESDAY, APRIL 29; 7 PM

Bestselling author NATHANIEL PHILBRICK will introduce the paperback version of Bunker Hill: A City, A Siege, A Revolution. Moving from the famous December 1773 Boston Tea Party to the June 1775 battle at Bunker Hill, Philbrick reconstructs the events that ignited the American Revolution. “With passion and insight, he describes the revolutionary landscape –geographic and ideological—in a mesmerizing narrative of the robust, messy, and blisteringly real origins of America.” According to the Miami Herald, “This is popular history at its best: a taut narrative with a novelist’s touch, grounded in careful research.”

Nathaniel Philbrick has also written Mayflower, In the Heart of the Sea, Sea of Glory, The Last Stand, Why Read Moby-Dick? and Away Off Shore. He lives on Nantucket
