Canceled: Oyster Roast with Author Karen A. Chase @ West End Branch Library

Canceled.  Author will be unable to attend.

What did colonists eat during the Revolution? Where could you get the best oysters in Manhattan? And who burned the city (on September 21st)—was it the British or the Americans? Discover the facts both proven and still bursting with questions behind Karen A. Chase’s book, Carrying Independence. And all the while sampling roasted oysters. Books & food, 1776 style!

Meet author Karen A. Chase and hear excerpts from her new book titled Carrying Independence.  Come early and enjoy some oysters on the library patio!  Book People will have copies of the book for sale and there will be a book signing after the presentation.

Oysters at 5pm, author talk begins at 6pm.
