Book Club Meeting

In the Hurricane’s Eye: The Genius of George Washington and the Victory at Yorktown
by Nathaniel Philbrick*
Hosted by Mary Tsaltas
Doors open at 5:30pm No entry after 6:15pm


In a narrative that moves from Washington’s headquarters on the Hudson River, to the wooded hillside in North Carolina where Nathanael Greene fought Lord Cornwallis to a vicious draw, to Lafayette’s brilliant series of maneuvers across Tidewater Virginia, Philbrick details the epic and suspenseful year of 1781 through to its triumphant conclusion. A riveting and wide-ranging story, full of dramatic, unexpected turns, In the Hurricane’s Eye reveals that the fate of the American Revolution depended, in the end, on Washington and the sea.
