The Writing History Colloquium and Andrews Society invite you to launch the new semester with a special event:
“Taking Liberties: Histories, Fictions, and Blind Spots”
A conversation with historians
Jane Kamensky and Jill Lepore
Wednesday 21 January, 3 p.m.
HGS 211, 320 York Street
All are welcome
Profs. Kamensky and Lepore will present their new book, Blindspot: A Novel (Spiegel and Grau, 2008), a collaboratively written work of historical fiction set in Boston on the eve of the American Revolution. Reviewers have called it a novel “as sexy as it is political, as accurate as it is outrageous,” combining “a tender love story, a murder mystery, and a brilliant sociological and political portrait of a turbulent time.”
