SIGNING THEIR LIVES AWAY tells the story of all 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence. John Hancock loved fancy clothes. Sam Adams really did own a brewery—and drove it to ruin. Ben Franklin was so rich he could retire at age 42. These stories and more. Yes, you could probably find and read a deeper, more profound, seriouser book about the Signers out there, but why would you? Published by Quirk Books, Philadelphia.
PRAISE for LIVES
* “With this work, Kiernan and D’Agnese present readers with astonishing individual portraits of all the signers in an attempt both to dispel some of the mythology surrounding the document as well as to establish a place in the historical discourse for those men not named Jefferson, Hancock, Franklin, or Adams.”— SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, starred review
As seen in Reader’s Digest, heard on WOR and NPR radio.
