David Hackett Fischer, well-known historian and author of the Pulitzer Prize winning Washington's Crossing, among many other books, was at SUNY's Writers Institute last night. He graciously signed some copies of his newest book, Champlain's Dream, for us! We only have a limited supply, so come and get your copy soon!
The book is an in-depth study of Champlain's life, focusing on his exploration of America. Not only is it interesting, but it's beautifully written, making it a pleasure to read. It's a book with plenty of local appeal as well. Christmas is right around the corner...a signed book would make a great gift!
We also have a few copies of two other of Fischer's books, Albion's Seed and The Great Wave. Come on in and check them out!
