Warrior? Prophet? Terrorist?

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and noted author Tony Horwitz is coming to Lawrence! Together with the Lawrence Public Library Foundation and Crown Automotive, we are thrilled to sponsor this special guest as part of the 1863 Commemorate Lawrence year-long observance of the 150th anniversary of Quantrill’s Raid. Join us on Thursday, April 4th at 7:30 pm at Liberty Hall for this free event. Mr. Horwitz will be joined on stage by KU Professor of History Jonathan Earle for a lively discussion about John Brown, his life, and his legacy. Mr. Horwitz is the author of several best-selling books, including his most recent, Midnight Rising: John Brown and the Raid That Sparked the Civil War. The Raven Bookstore will be selling copies of Mr. Horwitz’s books at the event.  We expect a big crowd for this event, so plan on coming early. Doors will open at 7:00 pm.
