The Pulitzer NC Bookmarks event on September 10, featuring two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alan Taylor, was a great success. More than 100 attended the reading at the popular annual festival in Winston-Salem, NC.
Taylor has a gift for bringing history to life. He offered the audience context for his work before reading from his latest book, American Revolutions: A Continental History, 1750-1804. Afterward, Taylor captivated the audience with detailed stories in response to their questions. He covered topics as diverse as the role of women, American Indians, indentured white laborers from Europe, and African Americans in the American revolutions, and the evolution of the thoughts of America as a republic.
