One Book One Belmont - Nathaniel Philbric's Bunker Hill: A City, a Siege, a Revolution

Bunker HillIn Bunker Hill: A City, a Siege, a Revolution, historian Nathaniel Philbrick tells the story of the first, and perhaps bloodiest, major battle of the Revolutionary War. From the Boston Tea Party to the skirmishes at Lexington and Concord, Philbrick details the events that led to the vicious engagement now known as the Battle of Bunker Hill, when the patriots proved beyond recourse that they were willing to lay down their lives for independence.

A dozen town departments and civic organizations have joined the Belmont Public Library in organizing activities that celebrate the book and this dramatic chapter in the history of “Boston Strong.” We hope you will join us for the following events. See events schedule here
