In the third presentation of our 2019 Sunday Speaker Series The Bones of Our Past: Jamestown and the Making of America, award-winning author Connie Lapallo transports us to 1609 and the journey of Joan Peirce and her daughter, who survive a hurricane at sea and Jamestown’s Starving Time to make a new life in the fledgling Virginia colony. Based on a true story, Lapallo reveals the courage these daunting women show in the face of disease, martial law and other hardships at Jamestown.
