Well, not exactly.
I had every intention of having blog posts lined up to carry us through the holidays here on the Margins. But as those of you who have subscribed to my newsletter* know, I’m struggling to finish a little book about the Atlantic slave trade. In the interest of sanity, I’m taking a blog holiday until the start of the year. I’ll be back on January 3rd, with some great stories from the corners of history, some books you ought to read, and some ideas I’m mulling over. In other words, it will be back to business as usual.
In the meantime, have a merry/jolly/happy/blessed time as you celebrate the victory of light over the darkness in the tradition of your choice.
*And speaking of the newsletter, the subscription form is in the upper right hand corner of the blog. If you’re interested.
