Ethan Allen: His Life & Times with Author Willard Sterne Randall

Renowned author Willard Sterne Randall will provide a free discussion of his most recent book, Ethan Allen: His Life and Times, at the Oliver Wolcott LIbrary on Thursday, November 10, 2011 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Nov. 7, 2011 - PRLog -- Ethan Allen, a canonical hero of the American Revolution, has always been defined by his darling, predawn attack on the British controlled Fort Ticonderoga.  Willard Sterene Randall, the author of Ethan Allen: His Life & Times, widens the scope of Allen’s inquiry beyond the Revolutionary War back to his modest origins in Connecticut where he was born in 1738.   Largely self educated from a relatively impoversed background, Allen demonstrated his deeply rebellious nature early on through his attraction to Diesm, his dramatic defense of smallpox vaccinations and his early support of seperation of church and state.

Randall is the author of thirteen books, including five biographies and two biographical readers.  He is a professor of history at Champlain College and resides in Burlington, Vermont.  His website is www.willardsternerandall.com  
A wine & cheese reception will follow the event.  The Hickory Stick Bookshop will provide books for signing and sale.  Space is limited. Registration is required and can be done by calling 860-567-8030 or logging onto www.owlibrary.org and clicking on Programs/Adult Programs.
