An Evening with Author Lucy Salyer
April 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us as scholar and author Lucy Salyer presents her new book, “Under the Starry Flag: How a Band of Irish Americans Joined the Fenian Revolt and Sparked a Crisis over Citizenship”.
In 1867, forty Irish-American freedom fighters, outfitted with guns and ammunition, sailed to Ireland to join the effort to end British rule. British authorities arrested them for treason as soon as they landed, sparking an international conflict that dragged the United States and Britain to the brink of war. “Under the Starry Flag” recounts this gripping legal saga.
Salyer will read from and sign and sell her book on Thursday, April 11 at 7pm. Free.
