Russell Shorto - Revolution Song: A Story of American Freedom

Upcoming Event
Thursday, November 9, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In The Island at the Center of the World, Shorto, a contributing writer at The New York Times Magazine, explored early American history by focusing on the role of the Dutch in the nation’s origins. In his new book, he investigates the meaning of iconic American values by examining a cross-section of the population living in the colonies on the eve of the American Revolution. With special attention to individual freedom, Shorto profiles the lives of a British aristocrat, a Native American warrior, a woman, a slave, a laborer, and George Washington. As his illuminating narrative lays out the textures of these people’s daily lives and delves into their hopes for the future of their country, he draws striking and thought-provoking parallels between their time and our own.
