Knight Conference Center at the Newseum
555 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C
John M. Barry’s latest book, Roger Williams and the Creation of the American Soul: Church, State, and the Birth of Liberty, is a revelatory look at the shaping of religious liberty, political power and individual rights in America. The convictions of Roger Williams, the 17th century pioneer in religious freedom, hold a powerful message for Americans debating the meaning of church-state separation and liberty of conscience in the 21st century.
Join us after the presentation for a reception with the author.
