The Spring Author Series returns to the Rising Sun Inn. This year’s series will be virtual and will feature both fiction and non-fiction authors. Join the Friends of the Rising Sun Inn for these very special programs. Authors Susan Higginbotham and Kit Sergeant created fictionalized stories about real life events and people… hear about the women of George Washington’s spy ring and Mary Todd Lincoln and her sister, Emily Todd Helm. John Beakes, military historian, returns to the Rising Sun Inn to present his fourth book in a series about Revolutionary War Generals. Hear the story of German-born and commander of Maryland Troops, Major General DeKalb.
Each event will include the lecture and Q & A. Additionally, as authors Susan and John are local Maryland authors, we have been able to arrange for signed copies of their books to be available for purchase. Information for signed book pick up will be announced at a later date. For those that wish to have their books mailed directly to them, an additional fee will apply. Contact FriendsofRSI@gmail.com for additional information.
