Mercy Street, Round 2

Heroines of Mercy StreetBack in November I promised you  that I wouldn’t clutter History in the Margins with little bits of news and speaking gigs.  And I intend to keep that promise.

But I want to give the Marginalia a heads up that the PBS series Mercy Street will air a second season starting on January 22.  Which means I will be starting another round of speaking and promotion related to the book.

The first gig will be on January 18:  an interview on Civil War Talk Radio.  Gerry Prokopowicz of East Carolina University hosts a weekly hour long interview with authors, historians, museum curators and the like about the Civil War.  I’ll be in good company. Think Doris Kearns Goodwin, Jeff Shaara, Ken Burns.*   The show is internet-based.  Programs are archived so you can listen to me, or Ken Burns,** at your leisure.

On February 2, I’m scheduled to speak at the Pritzker Military Library here in Chicago.  If you’re in the Chicago area, I’d love to see you there.  If not, the talk will livestream.  The woman who runs the program tells me I don’t have to perfect, I just have to be awesome.  No pressure there.

If you want to know what I’ll be doing when going forward, the schedule will be on the newsletter.**  It’s also on the events page on this blog.

It’s going to be Big Fun!
