There's still plenty of time to register for this week's Brown Bag Lunch with Francis J. Bremer. The weather is expected to heat up this week, so come join us in air-conditioned comfort and learn a little something at the same time.
First Founders re-introduces us to the New England Puritans as surprisingly diverse and dynamic group of people. The keenly drawn portraits in Francis Bremer's new book include some familiar figures — John Winthrop and Anne Hutchinson — but also some lesser-known but fascinating "strong women" and magistrates, merchants and Native Americans, the orthodox and the not-so-orthodox. First Founders demonstrates the great variety of life throughout colonial New England and traces their influence in the lives of contemporary Americans.
Francis J. Bremer is a distinguished scholar of American Puritanism and Emeritus Professor of History at Millersville State University in Pennsylvania. His many books include John Winthrop: America’s Forgotten Founding Father and Puritanism: A Very Short Introduction.
