My gratitude to teachers, students, and book clubs

I’ve had the opportunity to speak to several thousand elementary, middle, high school, and college students during my career as an author. I’ve also worked with dozens of students on projects, papers, theses, and History Day presentations. I always find students among the most engaged readers and they ask incisive questions. I’ve also worked with many teachers, either in preparation for appearances in their class, or in workshops on how best to convey historical topics to their students. These are among my most enjoyable appearances, and I wanted to say thanks to educators and students who have helped bring my books and history to life.

Book clubs have also been very supportive of my work, and I can’t say enough about how much this means to me. This year alone, I offer thanks to the following Massachusetts book clubs who have selected my books to read: the Norwood Historical Society , the Towns of Upton and Westwood, the Seekonk Public Library, the Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer (Foxboro, MA), and the Metropolican Waterworks Museum (Boston) “Waterworks Book Clubs.”

Visits to schools and book clubs have accounted for well over 100 of my total appearances and are among my favorites. Thanks so much for your support!
