Andrew Lawler, author of, “The Secret Token: Myth, Obsession, and the Search for the Lost Colony of Roanoke,” will join us at Sturgis Library to discuss the mystery surrounding the colony’s disappearance. A visual narrative will accompany the talk. Books will be available for purchase from Titcombs Books. A Q and A / Book signing will follow the discussion.

Mr. Lawler will cover:

How did the Lost Colony get lost?
Why has the fate of the colony been seen as a mystery?
How is the Lost Colony important to Native American history?
Why are the myths about the settlers, including Virginia Dare, associated with white nationalism?
What likely happened to the colonists?
