Our Beloved Kin: A New History of King Philip’s War
Thursday, September 27 starting at 6 PM at the Carpenter Museum
Lisa Brooks, Associate Professor of English and American Studies at Amherst College, will give a talk on her recently published book, Our Beloved Kin: A New History of King Philip’s War (Yale University Press, 2018). Our Beloved Kin covers a complex picture of war, captivity, and Native resistance during the “First Indian War” (later named King Philip’s War) by relaying the stories of Weetamoo, a female Wampanoag leader, and James Printer, a Nipmuc scholar, whose stories converge in the captivity of Mary Rowlandson. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Rehoboth Cultural Council, the local affiliate of the Massachusetts Cultural Council. This is free program.
