Historian James Evans looks at the remarkable life and times of William Penn: a genuine apostle – more so than those who sailed on the Mayflower – for American freedon. Penn was a Quaker emigrant who founded the state of Pennysylvania. Although his father was frustrated and enraged, he could not conceal the admiration that he felt for his son. And nor should we. His ideas were astonishing, and astonishingly modern. Penn faced numerous tragedies and struggles but has left a massive and profoundly admirable legacy.

Includes tea and cake after the lecture.
