Join author Andrew Noone for a reading from his nonfiction book Bathsheba Spooner: A Revolutionary Murder Conspiracy. The book details the most sensational crime of the Revolution. The title character, when five months pregnant, was hanged (despite protests to Boston) alongside her three British and American accomplices. Spooner, John Adams’ second cousin, was the first woman executed in the new U.S., the instigator behind the nation’s premier capital case.
