Bestselling author Russell Shorto will visit the John Adams Institute on January 23, 2018 (8:00 p.m - 9:30 p.m. at Singel 411) to discuss his new book Revolution Song.

Bestselling author Russell Shorto returns to the John Adams Institute to discuss his much-anticipated new book Revolution Song [excerpt of the Dutch translation]. In this narrative, Shorto asks what the American Revolution would have looked like if it were told exclusively through the prism of personal lives. In Revolution Song, Shorto paints an intimate group portrait of six extraordinary figures of the time. Individually, they represent both the radical promise and shocking failure of 'freedom.' Together, they reveal the breadth of America at the country’s inception and point ahead to the long march of American freedom. A 'decidedly refreshing approach,' according to The New York Times, calling Revolution Song 'a remarkable achievement.' Join us for an evening of idealism and courage.
