An Evening with Andrew Roberts, Author of The Last King of AmericaFebruary 25, 2022 from 6-8 p.m.
The Museum is excited to host Revolution Society and George Washington Council members for a special evening with historian and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Andrew Roberts on Friday, Feb. 25, 2022. Roberts will present a lecture inspired by his latest book, The Last King of America: The Misunderstood Reign of George III, which reexamines King George III and offers a nuanced and fascinating view of a controversial monarch often dismissed as a pompous buffoon or villain.
Following the lecture in the Museum’s Liberty Hall, Museum President & CEO Dr. R. Scott Stephenson will join the discussion to host a live Q&A with the onsite and online audiences. After the presentation, Revolution Society and George Washington Council members who are onsite are invited to join the author for a reception and book signing. Proof of vaccination is required for all onsite guests.
Revolution Society and George Washington Council members can RSVP to reserve a spot at the lecture and reception at the Museum or to attend online-only by emailing Manager of Leadership Giving Bridget Hovell at [email protected].
