Nathaniel Philbrick to visit NBS

MANCHESTER - On Saturday, July 13 at 7 p.m., Nathaniel Philbrick, the best-selling author of 'In the Heart of the Sea' and 'Mayflower,' brings his prodigious talents to the story of the Boston battle that ignited the American Revolution, 'Bunker Hill: A City, A Siege, A Revolution.'
