The State Library invites you to our final author talk of the season with noted historian Christine M. DeLucia, author of the recent book Memory Lands: King Philip’s War and the Place of Violence in the Northeast. To register, please visit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DeLucia-SLM
Memory Lands reexamines the violent 17th-century conflict between Native Americans and European settlers known as King Philip’s War. This book brings to light the alternate histories of this Indigenous resistance movement, providing an alternative to the conventional “Pilgrim-centric” narratives of colonial New England.
Author Christine M. DeLucia is a history professor who specializes in the Native American/Indigenous and colonial histories of the Northeast. She will sell and sign copies of Memory Lands ($20, cash or check) at the conclusion of her talk.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
