Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy – Author to Speak at WPPL May 6

We are part of The Trust Project

In this presentation by New York Times bestselling author Karen Abbott, the true stories of four courageous women – a socialite, a farm girl, an abolitionist, and a widow – who risked everything to serve their county’s cause during the Civil War (whether their country was the United States, or the Confederate States of America) will be told in the way that only a great novelist can. Based on Ms. Abbott’s latest book, Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy, nothing is ever quite what it seems as the true stories of these four women are woven together with other historical figures of the time to produce a tale filled not only with historical accuracy, but also spellbinding intrigue and adventure.

At the invitation of the Daniel Sickles Civil War Roundtable in White Plains, in cooperation with the White Plains Historical Society, Ms. Abbott will be speaking about her book, her research, and these real life daring and, until now, relatively unsung heroine spies at the White Plains Public Library on Wednesday. May 6, at 7:30 pm. The event is free and open to the public. All are welcome. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and can be personally autographed by the author.
