RFK Book Interview

I was recently interviewed by Marshall Poe, University of Iowa associate professor of history, for his blog New Books in History, which features discussions with historians about their work, and particularly their new books. The interview examined my book Robert F. Kennedy and the 1968 Indiana Primary, published this past spring by Indiana University Press.

"Writing Out Loud" Appearance at Michigan City

What to know what teacher inspired my love of history, why I decided to write a biography of Hoosier astronaut Gus Grissom, or what kind of computer I use to write my books? The answers to these and many other questions can be found by attending the twenty-fourth season of the Michigan City Public Library's "Writing Out Loud" program. I will be the featured author to be questioned at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 1, at the library, 100 East Fourth Street in Michigan City.

The program's format includes about twenty minutes of questions followed by a reading from the author. I will be reading a selection from my book Robert F. Kennedy and the 1968 Indiana Primary. I will then take questions from the audience.

For more information on the program, call the library at (219) 873-3049.
