Writers LIVE: Chris Formant: Saving Washington: The Forgotten Story of the Maryland 400 and The Battle of Brooklyn

Enoch Pratt Free Library

Join us at the Maryland State Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped to hear Chris Formant discuss his new book Saving Washington: The Forgotten Story of the Maryland 400 and The Battle of Brooklyn.

Saving Washington: The Forgotten Story of the Maryland 400 and The Battle of Brooklyn blends real-life historical figures and events with richly developed fictional characters. On a marshy Brooklyn battlefield on August 27, 1776, four hundred men from Baltimore, Maryland assembled to do battle against a vastly superior British army. The novel follows young Joshua Bolton and his childhood friend Ben Wright, a freed black man, as they witness British tyranny firsthand, become enraptured by the cause, and ultimately enlist to defend their new nation in a battle that galvanized the American nation on the eve of its birth.

Chris Formant is a student of history and former president of a multi-billion-dollar global business. This is his second novel.
