Book Signings, Appearances, and Events

In exciting, super short notice news, I’m going to be speaking tomorrow at the Swarthmore College library in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania! It is such an honor because many of the photographs in my book–including the cover–came from that archive. Some of my absolute favorite days spent researching were spent in the Swarthmore College Peace Collection and while getting photograph permissions was chaotic and stressful, the archivists at Swarthmore were by far the kindest, most helpful, most patient people I encountered in the whole process. Not only do they preserve history, but they were excited to share it.

The lecture tomorrow is the first in a series and this particular speaking event is about COs in WWII mental hospitals, given by the amazing George R. Cooley Curator, Wendy Chmielewski, and I’ll be given a few minutes at the end to talk about the COs at Byberry specifically and about my wonderful experience in the archive. It’s open to the public so if you’re available, please come visit!

In less short notice, I’ll also be at Barnes and Noble doing a signing on Saturday, October 19th. I’ll have a bucket of Halloween candy and will be signing copies of my book and available to answer any questions you might have! (I know a lot more about Byberry than I could fit in the tiny book!)

Barnes and Noble, Neshaminy, 300 Neshaminy Mall  Bensalem, PA 19020, Saturday, October 19th, 2:00-4:00 pm.

Hope to see you all at one or the other!!

Omgosh, how fancy and official is this!? My sister spotted it at the Barnes and Noble last week.
