Take your nose out of that book and geek out with your favorite authors or discover someone new to make your bookstack sing! There are tons of authors right in your own neighborhood writing everything from current events to mysteries to sci-fi and fantasy to the great American novel. Spend time with them as they talk about their latest work, what their writing process is, and join in Q&A to get to know them better.

Historian David Head talks about his latest book A Crisis of Peace: George Washington, the Newburgh Conspiracy, and the Fate of the American Revolution.  A Crisis of Peace tells the story of a pivotal episode of George Washington’s leadership and reveals how the American Revolution really ended: with fiscal turmoil, out-of-control conspiracy thinking, and suspicions between soldiers and civilians so strong that peace almost failed to bring true independence. 
About the author, David Head received his Ph.D. in history from the University at Buffalo. An expert in maritime history, pirates, and privateers as well as the American Revolution and the Founding Fathers, he teaches at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. 

A Crisis of Peace is David's fourth book. He previously published Privateers of the Americas: Spanish American Privateering from the United States in the Early Republic , which won the 2016 John Gardner Maritime Research Award presented by the Fellows of the G.W. Blunt White Library at Mystic Seaport Museum.
