Noble High School Visit

On February 25, I will make my third visit to Noble High School in Berwick, Maine. Students are currently reading Billy Boy, the Sunday Soldier of the 17th Maine. I've been asked to talk about the book and how I incorporated historical realities into a work of fiction. By the way, Berwick is the home of Billy Boy!

Recently Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was the keynote speaker at the Maine Community Foundation's "Evening of Philantrophy." As a thank you gift to Anna, she was given a copy of "Remember Me, Tomah Joseph's Gift to Franklin Roosevelt." Anna is a lovely person and in my humble opinion, has all the stature and presence that I'm sure her grandmother Eleanor exhibited.
