September 27 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM EDT

Cost: $10

Despite his celebrated status among America’s founding fathers as a revolutionary leader, Samuel Adams’ life and achievements have been largely overshadowed in history books. In The Revolutionary: Samuel Adams, Stacy Schiff brings her masterful history research and storytelling skills to the life of Samuel Adams, examining his transformation from the listless, failing son of a wealthy family into the tireless, silver-tongued revolutionary who rallied the likes of John Hancock and John Adams behind him. Gripping and revelatory, this book is a long-overdue chapter in the history of the American Revolution.
