Porter Square Books hosts author PHILIP G. SMUCKER, a fifth-great grandnephew of George Washington, with his nonfiction book Riding with George.
SMUCKER uses his background as a war correspondent, sports reporter, and amateur equestrian to weave an insightful tale based upon his own travels in the footsteps of Washington as a surveyor, sportsman, and field commander. Riding with George is “boots-in-stirrups” storytelling that unspools Washington’s rise to fame in a never-before-told tale. It shows how a young Virginian’s athleticism and Old World chivalry propelled him to become a model of right action and good manners for a fledgling nation.
This event is not ticketed.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
