Thursday, September 26 at 5:30pm at The NewSouth Bookstore: Stephen Puleo, author of The Great Abolitionist: Charles Sumner and the Fight for a More Perfect Union

September 26 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Charles Sumner, a lifelong crusader for human rights, has not been the subject of a comprehensive biography in many decades. Stephen Puleo fills that gap with his deeply researched and dramatic retelling of Sumner’s courageous life and work. The Great Abolitionist has been called “a superb new biography” and “a masterful account.” We are thrilled to host the author for a book talk and signing. Join us at The NewSouth Bookstore on Thursday, September 26 at 5:30pm.
