Writers Live @ CLP - Main: Nathaniel Philbrick

Thursday, May 16, 2013  
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Nathaniel Philbrick, the best-selling author of Mayflower and the National Book Award winner for In the Heart of the Sea, returns to Pittsburgh with Bunker Hill, which gives a visceral account of the battle that ignited the American Revolution. Bunker Hill lends a fresh perspective to the battle that brought war to the colonies in 1775, discovering new characters and bringing new light to familiar ones. Philbrick passionately reconstructs the revolutionary landscape in a mesmerizing narrative of the robust, messy, blisteringly real origins of America.

A book signing follows the program with copies of Bunker Hill available for sale from Mystery Lovers Bookshop.

Registration is required. Please visit the link below for FREE tickets.

Writers LIVE @ CLP – Main is a collaboration between Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures.
