What a fun day ahead! Saturday, December 12th, Donald Soctomah and I will be at LLBean's signing Remember Me AND my favorite Civil War re-enactors, the Cyliks,will be joining me once again at the next table for Billy Boy, the Sunday Soldier of the 17th Maine. Marcia is lovely in her period dresses, complete with hoop skirt, and Dick is resplendent in his uniform. He brings an unloaded musket! Great crowd pleasers. If you're in the neighborhood, drop by from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm in the main store.

I just heard that one of my early readers, Dustin Moore, 14, of Greene, Maine, attended a "Leadership in Training" camp at Camp Susan Curtis this past summer. A junior camp counselor, Dustin selected "Billy Boy, the Sunday Soldier of the 17th Maine" for the evening's campfire read. He said his 8-9 year-olds were an attentive and enthusiastic audience. Thanks, Dustin, and have a good football season!

If you're in the neighborhood........I will be doing a book signing of Billy Boy at Willowbrook, a 19th century village in Newfield, Maine on Saturday, September 19th, from 10:00 - 4:00 pm. I'm accompanying the Third Maine Regiment reenactors, Company A. The 3rd Maine Regiment Volunteer Infantry has acquired a reputation for historical authenticity both within and outside of the state. During their 5th annual visit to Willowbrook, their infantry will demonstrate mid-19th century military drill, their musicians will provide displays of period fife and drum pieces, and their surgeon will present excellent impressions of Civil War medical care. A great living history day!
