WMRA Books & Brews December 11

Location: Pale Fire Tap Room
Date: December 11, 2018
Time: 7 PM-8 PM

Our December Books & Brews features author Ed Ayers discussing his book, The Thin Light of Freedom: The Civil War and Emancipation in the Heart of America. This book tells a story of America’s history and two astounding events: The immediate and complete destruction of the most powerful system of slavery in the modern world followed by a political reconstruction in which new constitutions established the fundamental rights of citizens for formerly enslaved people. Few people living in 1860 would have dared imagine either event, and yet, in retrospect, both seem to have been inevitable.

WMRA’s Books & Brews series is sponsored by Union Bank & Trust.
