Saturday, March 26 at 1:00 pm

Join historian Lew Taylor as he discusses the life and writings of Mercy Otis Warren. Born in Barnstable, MA, Mercy Otis Warren was a female patriot who stoked the fires of revolution with powerful arguments. She incorporated many of her ideas into poems, pamphlets, and satirical plays, and she also wrote a three volume history of the American Revolution. Her keen interest in politics led to friendships with many of the famous leaders of the American Revolution, whose names are still remembered today.  

Lew Taylor is a retired U.S. Army (Disability) Vietnam Veteran, the owner of I Cannot Live Without Books in West Dennis, and an instructor for the Academy of Lifelong Learning. He is currently writing a Master’s thesis on Mercy Otis Warren.
