Come and hear Jon Foyt discuss his latest novel based on the true story of Robert Morris, an illegitimate and uneducated immigrant from Liverpool who became one of America's most unusual Founding Fathers. The Mind of an American Revolutionary is Jon Foyt's 12th novel. Robert Morris's story is extraordinary! He paid for critical portions of the American Revolution out of his own pocket, while helping found the first ever bank in the Colonies, and then ended up in a debtor's prison. He was one of just three men to sign all vital Revolutionary documents: the Articles of Confederation, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution. Read all about his motivations, marriage, affairs, and fortitude in this well researched and highly entertaining novel.
