Meet the Author: Andrew Lawler (Cultural Heritage Partners)

October 1, 2020

Please join us in welcoming journalist Andrew Lawler for Cultural Heritage Partners’ very first Meet the Author livestream event on Thursday, October 1 from 7:00 - 8:30 pm. 

Andrew authored the bestselling book, The Secret Token: Myth, Obsession, and the Search for the Lost Colony of Roanoke, which you can purchase here. We cannot think of a better person to help us kick off CHP’s series of conversations with renowned writers on fun topics and important issues impacting cultural heritage and historic preservation. There is no cost to join in, but we urge you to sign up now using this link as participation may be limited.

Our conversation with Andrew will focus on his discoveries about the Lost Colony of Roanoke, a predecessor to Jamestown and an enduring historical mystery. We will discuss the legacy of the Lost Colony myth and what it tells us about contemporary debates in American heritage and the development of ideas about race in the 19th century. You will have an opportunity to ask your own questions on these and other topics.

In his career as a journalist, Andrew has written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, National Geographic, and Smithsonian, among many other outlets, and he has won numerous awards for his reporting, including the Gene S. Stuart Award from the Society for American Archaeology. Currently, he is a contributing writer for Science and a contributing editor for Archaeology. He is also the author of Why Did the Chicken Cross the World?: The Epic Saga of the Bird that Powers Civilization. 

Andrew has written recently about monument removal in Virginia and across America. His widely read article for POLITICO details Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney’s removal of Confederate monuments, and his piece for National Geographic explains that monument removal is not a new phenomenon. 

Please register here to reserve a spot. We will provide a link to join on the day of the event.

Cultural Heritage Partners, PLLC, headquartered in Washington, DC and with offices in New York, NY, and Richmond, VA, is a global law, government affairs, and strategy firm that handles issues related to cultural heritage, historic preservation, tribal governance, art and antiquities, and museums.
