Gunn Memorial Library in Washington will present a visual presentation with author, filmmaker and educator Tom Shachtman Sept. 26 at 6:30 p.m.

The presentation will be given following a signing of Shachtman’s recently published book “How the French Saved America: Soldiers, Sailors Diplomats, Luis XVI and the Success of a Revolution” at the Wykeham Road library.

The narrative history captures the individual characters of our European brothers, their battlefield and diplomatic bonds and clashes with Americans, and the monumental role they played in America’s fight for independence and democracy.

Hickory Stick Bookshop will provide books for sale and signing.

Registration is required by calling 860-868-7586.
