The Revolutionary: Author Lecture with Stacy Schiff

Samuel Adams was the man with high-minded ideals and bare-knuckle tactics, who led what could be called the greatest campaign of civil resistance in American history. This is the revelatory biography from a Pulitzer Prize-winner about the most essential Founding Father—the one who stood behind the change in thinking that produced the American Revolution.

A book signing and reception with complimentary beer, wine, and hors-d'oeuvres will take place after the lecture.
