Reminder: McConville at Old South

And here's a quick reminder that tonight Boston University professor Brendan McConville speaks at Old South Meeting-House, under the auspices of the Paul Revere Memorial Association, about radicalism in pre-Revolutionary America.

As of a couple of weeks ago, Brendan told me that he hadn't settled on what he was going to talk about, but it's bound to be provocative. He's written one book on disturbances in New Jersey, and has another soon to arrive on what the British king meant to colonial Americans. And when Brendan gets excited about a topic, he talks very fast. Sure to be lots of good information!
