An Evening with Author Stephen Fried

September 25 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$15

Dr. Benjamin Rush was the most well known physician in 18th-century America, as well as a patriot, philosopher, author, lecturer, fervent evangelist, politician, and dedicated social reformer. Married to one of Richard and Annis Stockton’s daughters, Julia, Dr. Rush frequently visited Morven. Both Richard Stockton and Rush signed the Declaration of Independence and were key figures in America’s birth.

Hosting best-selling author and local resident Stephen Fried’s latest book launch during Morven’s grand reopening month is an exciting event.  Fried will share Dr. Rush’s life and activities in and around Morven throughout “Rush: Revolution, Madness, and Benjamin Rush, the Visionary Doctor Who Became a Founding Father.”

The evening’s events begin at 5:00 p.m. with docent-led tours of our newly reopened Morven museum. Docents will share anecdotes on both Dr. Rush and his family’s relationship to Morven’s residents. Light refreshments, including pastries and punch, as well as 18th century live music, will begin at 5:45 p.m. inside Morven’s newly completed Stockton Education Center, adjacent to the Museum, following the tour. At 6:30, the illustrated lecture, Q&A, and book signing begin.
