Winding down a great speaking season

I’m winding down a very busy and enjoyable Fall speaking season, with just a couple of events remaining before the close of 2019. By year’s end, I’ll have made 580 career author appearances since the publication of my first book, Dark Tide. I thank those people and organizations who work so hard to put these events together, and those who take time from their busy schedules to attend. This Fall was no exception.

I thoroughly enjoyed participating in the Perkins School for the Blind’s “Libraries Without Walls,” an interesting and lively conference call during which I discussed my book, American Treasures. In Wellesley, MA, more than 150 people turned out to hear my presentation on The Boston Italians, while I had a great time discussing A City So Grand with the College Club of Boston, the nation’s oldest continually operating women’s club. I also enjoyed appearances before the Justinian Law Society (The Boston Italians), at the Eldredge Library in Chatham, MA (Dark Tide), at the Oak Point community in Middleborough (Dark Tide), and at the Boston Druggists Association quarterly meeting (Dark Tide).
