Dumbarton House: Lecture, & Book Signing (Snow-Storm in August by Jefferson Morley)
Dumbarton House and The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the District of Columbia invite you to this special program.
In his 2012 book Snow-Storm in August, our speaker and Washington correspondent for Salon "touches on themes still relevant today: unresolved racial tensions, simmering resentment over economic disparity, influence peddling among the powerful, and the red-blue divide between conservatives and progressives over whether human property — and their descendants — deserve the full benefits of the new nation's famously stated ideals." - The Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Mr. Morley's work also includes Our Man in Mexico: Winston Scott and the Hidden History of the CIA, and numerous articles for Harpers, New Republic, and The Washington Post among others. He has taught at Boston University, Georgetown University, and in Disitrict of Columbia public schools. Click here to register.
