Nathaniel Philbrick, the best-selling author of Mayflower and the National Book Award winner for In the Heart of the Sea,returns to Pittsburgh with Bunker Hill, which gives a visceral account of the battle that ignited the American Revolution. Bunker Hill lends a fresh perspective to the battle that brought war to the colonies in 1775, discovering new characters and bringing new light to familiar ones. Philbrick passionately reconstructs the revolutionary landscape in a mesmerizing narrative of the robust, messy, blisteringly real origins of America.
A book signing will follow Nathaniel Philbrick's talk and reading. Copies of Philbrick's new book, Bunker Hill, will be sold by Mystery Lovers Bookshop, along with selections from Philbrick's backlist.
