Historical Fiction Book Group: “Caleb’s Crossing”

Thursday, May 14, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The Historical Fiction Book Group features scholar-led book discussions about the fictional elements and nonfictional historic and regional context of selected books.

In this session, Seton Hall University Associate Professor of History Sean P. Harvey discusses “Caleb’s Crossing” by Geraldine Brooks. The book is set in 17th-century Martha’s Vineyard and explores the connection between a Puritan family and the son of a Wampanoag leader who would become the first Native American graduate of Harvard.

Registration is requested but not required through the Historical Society of Princeton’s website.

Presented in partnership with the library and the Historical Society of Princeton.
