John M. Barry Live interview with Book Talk & signing Roger Williams and The Creation of the American Soul (Viking Adult, $35.00)
Sunday, January 22nd, 3 PM.
The Booksellers at Laurelwood is honored to host acclaimed historian and “New York Times” bestselling author John M. Barry for a live interview with Stephen Usery of Book Talk – FM89.3 WYPL’s Author Interview Program. His new book offers a revelatory look at how Roger Williams shaped the nature of religion, political power, and individual rights in America. Mr. Barry explores the development of these fundamental ideas through the story of the man who was the first to link religious freedom to individual liberty, and who created in America the first government and society on earth informed by those beliefs. The story is essential to the continuing debate over how we define the role of religion and political power in modern American life.
