Book Talk and Signing with Nancy Rubin Stuart
(Sandwich—April 2013)  Nancy Rubin Stuart, author of Defiant Brides: The Untold Story of Two Revolutionary-Era Women and the Radical Men They Married, will be at Sandwich Public Library for a book talk and signing on Thursday, April 25th at 7:00pm. This event is free and open to the public.
Two wealthy Revolutionary-era teenagers defy their parents and marry political radicals. The first, the voluptuous Boston brunette, Lucy Flucker of Boston, wed poor bookbinder, Henry Knox.  The second, the beautiful blonde Philadelphia belle, Peggy Shippen, weds military hero Benedict Arnold.  Their lives are changed forever. One bride becomes a patriot – and the other, a spy.
