Pulitzer-Prize winning writer Debby Applegate will speak on Henry Ward Beecher: The Most Famous Man in America. This book,
researched for twenty years, tells the larger story of nineteenth-century America’s religious transition from a Puritan and theocratic past to a ‘modern’ liberal orthodoxy premised on happiness, love, and the banishment of original sin.
