Diane McCormick ’83 takes readers on a pub crawl through time in her new book, Well-Behaved Taverns Seldom Make History: Pennsylvania Pubs Where Rabble-Rousers and Rum Runners Stirred Up Revolutions, published by Sunbury Press.

The Jean Bonnet Tavern in Bedford inspired her exploration of existing taverns with ties to insurrections and uprisings, including the American Revolution, Whiskey Rebellion, Underground Railroad, and Molly Maguires.
