Mutiny on the Rising Sun recounts the schooner Rising Sun’s 1743 smuggling voyage in vivid detail, narrating a deeply human history of smuggling and providing an incredible story of those caught in the webs spun by illicit commerce during the eighteenth-century. At once startling and captivating, Mutiny on the Rising Sun shows how illegal trade created demand for exotic products like chocolate, and how slavery and smuggling were integral to the development of American capitalism.

Jared Ross Hardesty is Associate Professor in the Department of History at Western Washington University and author of three books, Unfreedom: Slavery and Dependence in Eighteenth-Century Boston, Black Lives, Native Lands, White Worlds: A History of Slavery in New England, and Mutiny on the Rising Sun: A Tragic Tale of Slavery, Smuggling, and Chocolate. He lives in Bellingham, WA with his wife Dana and dog Forge.

Online registration closes one hour prior to the event. Walk-ins will be welcome if there are available spaces.
