John Ebenreiter - 'Bye, George

John Ebenreiter will be appearing to sign copies of 'Bye, George.

In this historical novel, six soldiers reveal their battle experiences, hopes and fears, and lessons learned through letters to a Philadelphia tavern owner before, during, and after the War of Independence.

It is 1774 and the stage has already been set for the War of Independence. As a Continental Congress is called to deal with the deteriorating situation between the colonies and Britain, six soldiers begin penning heartfelt letters to Eb Chaplin, the owner of the Blaze Horse Tavern in Philadelphia.

Soldiers Moses, Ben, Teunis, Roelof, and Felix are Patriots. The sixth soldier, Zack, is loyal to King George III of Great Britain. In letters addressed to Eb Chaplin written over the course of several years, the soldiers tell of their experiences during the War of Independence from the opening salvo at Lexington and Concord in 1775 to the capitulation of the British at Yorktown in 1781. In his return letters to the soldiers, Chaplin tells of the political and diplomatic events affecting the War of Independence from the beginning to the end when America bids good-bye to King George with the signing of the Treaty of Paris.

The signing will take place on Saturday, August 20th, from 9 until 11 AM.
