RWU Talking in the Library Series with Lucas Mason-Brown
Lucas Mason-Brown is the cryptographer who recently deciphered a handwritten code developed by Roger Williams that he wrote in the margins of books. Historians call the now-readable writings the most significant addition to Williams's scholarship in a generation or more. Williams is Rhode Island's founder and best known as a proponent for the separation of church and state, an idea that would later be enshrined in the Bill of Rights. An informal reception will follow the event.
The event is free and open to the public; it will be held in the RWU Library's Mary Tefft White Cultural Center.
