Nationally-acclaimed author Russell Shorto discusses his recent book, Revolution Song.  This award-winning narrative history takes us back to the founding of the American nation, drawing on diaries, letters and autobiographies to flesh out six lives that cast the era in a fresh new light. They include an African man who freed himself and his family from slavery, a rebellious young woman who abandoned her abusive husband to chart her own course, and a certain Mr. Washington, admired for his social graces but also harshly criticized.  Copies of the book will be for sale and autographing following the talk.
