Last Date:

Former Washington Post reporter and noted author, Jefferson Morley, will discuss the subject of his latest literary masterpiece, the Snow Riot of 1835. 

In “Snow-Storm in August,” Morley answers many questions and fills in some of the blanks, "...assembling a portrait of Washington in the 1830s by exploring characters who inhabit the second tier of history or well below. The plunge beneath the surface of history exposes realities more true to daily experience than executive proclamations or speeches in Congress."
