The Boston Massacre bookcover 

Join Professor Serena Zabin for a discussion of her new book about the beginning of the American Revolution. The Boston Massacre: A Family History recounts the famous event from an engagingly human perspective.

Serena Zabin has taught at Carleton since 2000. A member of the History department, she also directs the American Studies program and serves as the Broom Fellow for Public Scholarship. Her work on the Boston Massacre has garnered major grants from many agencies, including the National Endowment for the Humanities (twice) and the American Council of Learned Societies. Besides The Boston Massacre, she is the author of two other books. In cooperation with Professor Austin Mason, she has been working with Carleton students for several years on a serious video game about the Boston Massacre.

The program will begin at 7:00 p.m. and is open to the public. Feel free to come early to browse the extensive selection at this wonderful independent bookstore. Following the talk at 8:30 p.m., Nicole Hamilton '13 will host an onsite reception (light snacks and beverages available for purchase) for Carleton alumni and friends.

Cost: The book talk is free. Purchase your own food and/or drink at the gathering.
