In Abigail Adams, award-winning historian Woody Holton reveals that Abigail had an unprecedented role in controlling the family’s finances – and was remarkably savvy for her time.
Woody Holton is associate professor of history at the University of Richmond in Virginia and the recipient of a coveted Guggenheim fellowship for Abigail Adams. His first book, Forced Founders, received the prestigious Merle Curti Award for social history from the Organization of American Historians; Unruly Americans and the Origins of the Constitution was a finalist for the National Book Award.
$5 tickets may be purchased at the door and include admission to the Museum. Talk will be followed by a book sale and signing. Feel free to bring your lunch.
