Author(s) and Guest(s)

Nathaniel Philbrick

In Bunker Hill: A City, A Siege, A Revolution (Viking: $32.95) Nathaniel Philbrick reconstructs the revolutionary landscape—geographic and ideological—in his narrative of the robust, messy, and blisteringly real origins of America. ". . . a superior talent for renewing interest in a famed event . . ."--Publishers Weekly.  Philbrick bestselling books include National-Book-Award winner In the Heart of the Sea; Pulitzer-Prize finalist Mayflower, Sea of Glory; and The Last Stand.   

Brenda Wineapple

With a cast of extraordinary characters, such as P. T. Barnum, Walt Whitman, and Frederick Douglass, Ecstatic Nation: Confidence, Crisis, and Compromise, 1848-1877 (Harper; $35.00) brilliantly balances cultural and political history as it illuminates one of the most dramatic and momentous chapters in America's past, when the country dreamed big, craved new lands and new freedom, and was bitterly divided over its great moral wrong: slavery. "An indispensable guide to the forces that created our own time.” -- The Boston Globe. Brenda Wineapple’s other books include the award-winning White Heat: The Friendship of Emily Dickinson and Thomas Wentworth Higginson.
