Stacy Schiff, “The Revolutionary Samuel Adams” - 5 pm, November 21, University Theatre, FAU Boca Raton
Moderated by Steve Engle, FAU Professor of History
Stacy Schiff is the author of “The Witches: Salem, 1692,” which The New York Times hailed as “an almost novelistic, thriller-like narrative.” She also authored “Véra (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov),” winner of the Pulitzer Prize; and “Saint-Exupéry,” a Pulitzer Prize finalist. In “The Revolutionary, Samuel Adams,” which will be available on Tuesday, Oct. 25, Schiff brings her masterful skills to Adams’ improbable life, illuminating his transformation from aimless son of a well-off family to tireless, beguiling radical who mobilized the colonies.
