EVENT NEWS: "A Night With...Abigail and John Adams" Nov. 17

The Wilkinson College of Humanities and Social Sciences 2011-2012 Series presents, "A Night with Abigail and John Adams.”

Abigail and John Adams lived through some of the most tumultuous times in American History. Beginning their marriage on a Massachusetts farm in British Colonial America, they participated in the revolution that led to independence, traveled to Europe to advance the interests of the new nation, and returned to the United States where John served as the nation's first Vice President and second President.  You are invited to listen to the letters that attest to their fascinating life together that spanned 54 years.

The letters will be read by Dr. Elizabeth Eastman, Assistant Professor of Political Science who also teaches in the History Department.  Dr. John C. Eastman is the Henry Salvatori Professor of Law and Community Service and the former Dean of Chapman Law School. 

Come be a part of history, at a night you’ll be sure to remember!
