200-plus pack hall to hear me talk about my book

It was a capacity crowd that heard me speak on Tuesday, Oct. 29 about the War of 1812 and my historical novel that describes this awful war.

The setting was the men's club of the North Shore Senior Center in Northfield, but plenty of women also showed up to hear me describe "America's worst war." Here are photos of the event, courtesy of an old friend, Henry Kisor, former book editor of the Chicago Sun-Times and himself an author of non-fiction books and mysteries. Help me return the favor by checking out his website and his books here.

For more on my book, Madness: The War of 1812 go here.




With cannon aimed at my head, I guess it was time to get off the stage.
