Nina Sankovitch. Ms. Sankovitch has lived an interesting life. She graduated from Harvard Law School. Many years later, after the death of her older sister due to cancer, she dealt with her grief by reading a book a day for a year, and reviewing the books on her blog. This experience led her to write her first book, Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading. She followed that up with Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Celebrating the Joys of Letter Writing, a subject for which she also gave a TED Talk. Her third book was her first full-scale foray into history, The Lowells of Massachusetts: An American Family. Her fourth book, which is the subject of her presentation, is American Rebels: How the Hancock, Adams, and Quincy Families Fanned the Flames of Revolution. Ms. Sankovitch’s latest book is also available on Amazon. A meeting invitation with link will be sent out to members a few days before the meeting.
Nina Sankovitch is an eclectic and talented individual who has been profiled in the New York Times, has given a TED Talk, read a book a day for a year and blogged her reviews of each book, and eventually brought her Harvard Law School training and discipline to the field of history. Earlier this year she released her fourth book, American Rebels: How the Hancock, Adams, and Quincy Families Fanned the Flames of Revolution, which will be the subject she will present about at the October 26th meeting. Ms. Sankovitch has also graciously agreed to send a signed bookplate for her book to anyone that purchases the book. To receive a bookplate, send her an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, indicate you are an ARRTOP member, include your mailing address, and indicate any dedication you would like on the bookplate.
