Come to the State Library at noon on Wednesday, March 7, for an author talk and book signing with BROOKE BARBIER, author of Boston in the American Revolution: A Town versus an Empire.
Boston in the American Revolution explores the truths behind the myths of the key players in the American Revolution, including Samuel Adams, John Hancock, and Paul Revere. These historical figures come to life in vivid detail in this lively and entertaining read. In addition to its fresh perspective on the years leading up to the Revolution, Boston in the American Revolution provides a guide to the sites in the Boston area where these important historical events unfolded.
Author BROOKE BARBIER is the founder of Ye Olde Tavern Tours, which offers tours of the Freedom Trail because she believes that beer makes history even better. She earned her Ph.D. in American History from Boston College, where she studied the history of Boston before and during the American Revolution. She taught history at both Boston College and Stonehill College and worked for the Boston Red Sox for ten years, including time as a historical consultant.

Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
