Roger Williams Author At BotS

(6.15) Head over to Books on the Square this Friday when writer James A. Warren will discuss his new book “God, War, and Providence: the Epic Struggle of Roger Williams and the Narragansett Indians against the Puritans of New England.”  From Kirkus Reviews,

As Warren shows us—after rightly noting that the voices of the Indians are too often silent in the historical record—Williams, after establishing the Rhode Island colony, worked tirelessly on behalf of all; it was only when Puritan expansionism (and rampant lying and greed) grew intolerable that frontier warfare erupted.

I know who I’m rooting for.

Free, 7pm, Friday, June 15, Books on the Square, 471 Angell Street, (directions)
