Join us for a reading from The Freedman by author and historian Lars D. H. Hedbor.
An untold story from the Revolution, a grim future seems to await Calabar as he tries to find his way in a society where, as a former slave, it seems that every institution is set against his life and liberty, never mind his pursuit of happiness. When the Revolution offers him a way to strike a blow for freedom, though, will he answer the call?
Hedbor has written extensively about this era for the Journal of the American Revolution, and has appeared as a featured guest on an Emmy-nominated Discovery Network program, The American Revolution, which premiered nationally on the American Heroes Channel in late 2014. He has also appeared as a series expert on America: Fact vs. Fiction for Discovery Networks, and was a panelist at the Historical Novel Society’s 2017 North American Conference.
