Due to hazardous weather conditions predicted for this evening, this event is canceled. We will work with the presenter to reschedule for a future date.
Why did the French journey to North America in the 1600s? What
were they looking for, what did they find, and how did their efforts to establish
a colony end in disaster…and set the stage for our American Revolution? Join
historical novelist Jeff Heller as he uses slides and commentary to present the
fascinating story of how fighting, folkways, and even fashion influenced the
actions taken by the French in their bold quest to claim a continent.
Jeff Heller is a screenwriter, playwright, and novelist who
has just released his novel, A False Dawn,
on Amazon Kindle. He regularly speaks about the French in America at libraries,
cultural events, and historical societies.
