Halifax to Host Women Writers of the Southern Revolutionary War


On Jan. 11 Historic Halifax State Historic Site will host “Women Writers of the Southern Revolutionary War.” Join three women authors who regularly write about the American Revolution for a panel discussion: 

Suzanne Adair, author of “Paper Woman, Regulated for Murder, and A Hostage to Heritage” 

Karen A. Chase, author of “Carrying Independence” 

Libby McNamee, author of “Susanna’s Midnight Ride” 

As the home of the Halifax Resolves, North Carolina’s first state constitution, and the site of a Revolutionary War battle, Halifax, North Carolina is the perfect location for this panel discussion on woman writers, literary arts, and the American Revolution. The event will feature a discussion by the authors, a book signing, a light lunch, and an optional tour of Historic Halifax State Historic Site.
