Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales Book Club – Meeting #1

One Dead Spy

We had a great first meeting for our book club on Tuesday, Oct. 8th! The featured book was ONE DEAD SPY by author Nathan Hale – a non-fiction graphic novel featuring the revolutionary war and state hero Nathan Hale.

As promised at our meeting, I wanted to share a few links of interest for our club members (and others). The following are some fun videos I shared (or didn’t have time to share) that give some extra context and information about Nathan Hale and his world. I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting on November 12 @ 6:30 PM (we’ll be discussion BIG BAD IRONCLAD).
