Upcoming Mini Tour

I've been a little preoccupied the last couple of weeks preparing for an upcoming mini book tour.
Tuesday afternoon I'll be speaking at the W.T. Bland Public Library in Mount Dora, FL, at 2PM, about "David Crockett in Congress," the new political biography I wrote with Allen Wiener. Mount Dora is a lovely town, so come early and take a stroll around the downtown shops before joining us.

Following my Mount Dora appearance, I'll be making a solo drive to Tennessee for a few events around Crockett's old stomping grounds.

December 15, I'll be at the Tennessee State Museum, speaking at a 4PM event sponsored by the Tennessee Historical Society. I'm looking forward to this special program because, before my talk on Crockett's congressional career, the museum is offering a tour of Crockett artifacts from their collection.

On the 16th, at 11AM, I'll be signing copies at Rhino Booksellers' Charlotte Avenue location, also in Nashville. Plan on spending a lot of time winding through the stacks and browsing through the massive and eclectic selection. Fred Koller, the shop's owner, is an old friend of mine and I'm looking forward to catching up with him. Who knows, maybe we'll even break out a couple of guitars.

The 17th brings me to Murfreesboro, where Crockett met with the State Legislature. I'll be signing at Books A Million on Old Fort Road from 5PM - 7PM.

Stop by and say hello if you're in the neighborhood!
