Using the same theme as his previous two books, local collector Jeff Finegan allows his audience to see Washington’s life through the eyes of this extraordinary individual. Lafayette was 19 years old when he arrived in the colonies, and he quickly became a revered figure in the American army, particularly with George Washington. A father-and-son relationship quickly developed. How ironic that George Washington literally began the French & Indian War, the same war in which Lafayette’s father was killed when Lafayette was but two years old. Finegan’s manuscript collection will again be featured, and the highlight of his third book will be Preston Hindmarch’s incisive art work. Finegan will hold a book-signing following his talk. Included with regular museum admission or $5 donation requested.
