Revolutionary-Era Northampton County with Dr. Rebecca Price Janney | LV Discourse

History.jpg

Host John Pearce sits down with Dr. Rebecca Price Janney, a prolific novelist who creates stories based on history. She shares her fourth book in her Easton series, Easton at the Crossroads, which tells parallel stories of Northampton County during the time of the U.S. Revolutionary War and a present-day history professor.

Dr. Janney also explains the role of the Lehigh Valley flying camps in the Battle of Brooklyn in 1776 and how she weaves fictitious characters into historical facts.  

Tune in to Lehigh Valley Discourse Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:00 PM following All Things Considered.

From the age of 9, John had his sights set on a career in broadcasting. But instead, he wound up teaching French and Spanish at Muhlenberg College for 40 years. Now, in retirement, John gets to call the mic and earphones his buddies at our studios in eclectic South Bethlehem. His signoff: "Remember to be gentle with your neighbor."
