Free Book Talk: The Permanent Resident

At this free Ford Evening Book Talk, hear about Philip Levy’s new book, The Permanent Resident: Excavations and Explorations of George Washington’s Life.

This archaeological biography of the Father of Our Country uncovers the physical remains of the major sites he lived at or visited—from his childhood home near Fredericksburg to Barbados and Mount Vernon—while also narrating their many, and shifting, afterlives in American popular memory.

Attend virtually or in person. In-person attendees can attend a book signing following the event.
