BOOK TALK WITH JON KUKLA<br>Patrick Henry: Champion of Liberty BOOK TALK WITH JON KUKLA
Patrick Henry: Champion of Liberty

Thursday, July 06, 2017
Time: 5:30 PM–7:00 PM
Place: Lecture Hall

Join historian and author Jon Kukla as he discusses his latest work with Sarah McConnell, producer and host of public radio's “With Good Reason.” This authoritative biography of Patrick Henry—the underappreciated founding father best known for saying, “Give me liberty, or give me death!”—restores him and his fellow Virginians to their seminal place in the story of American independence. Henry was enormously influential in his time, but his accomplishments, other than his oratory, were subsequently all but forgotten. Kukla has thoroughly researched Henry's life, even living on one of Henry's estates. He brings both newly discovered documents and new insights to the story of the patriot who played a central role in the movement to independence, the Revolution, the Constitutional era, and the early Republic. Reception at 5:30 pm, book talk at 6:00 pm, and book signing at 7:00 pm. The book is available for pre-order through the Virginia Shop at 804.692.3524 or https://goo.gl/rlW2xQ.
