Bestselling author Russell Shorto returns to the John Adams to discuss his much-anticipated new book Revolution Song. 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.
