Quincy College Meet the Author Night with Nick Bunker
Tuesday, October 21, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Quincy College, in partnership with the Thomas Crane Public Library, is hosting Meet the Author Night with Nick Bunker. Nick Bunker is the author of An Empire On The Edge: How Britain Came to Fight America.
In this powerful but fair-minded narrative, British author Nick Bunker tells the story of the last three years of mutual embitterment that preceded the outbreak of America’s war for independence in 1775. It was a tragedy of errors, in which both sides shared responsibility for a conflict that cost the lives of at least twenty thousand Britons and a still larger number of Americans. The British and the colonists failed to see how swiftly they were drifting toward violence until the process had gone beyond the point of no return.
Bunker will lead an eye-opening discussion on the study of the British view of the American Revolution and why they were crazy to fight it.
Copies of his book will be available to purchase at the event.
A question and answer session will follow.
Free and open to the public.
