My appearance on CT-N. Great conversation after my presentation with lots of amazing revelations about America’s first celebrity. This is still my favorite book that I wrote.
Braved the rain and wind along with 50 other people to go to the annual meeting of the Madison Land Trust. We discussed the ways people fall in love with nature and the land, and I pitched my ideas about connecting the state’s vast network of trails through a website or maps, partnering with bed and breakfasts and other businesses, and setting up a system by which we can bring in more tourists from outside, keep more people here for staycations, and create the conditions under which young people (and spry older folks) might fall in love with their home.
My novella, “Inside the Whale,” is part of this amazing new anthology by Running Wild Press. Get yourself a copy here. It is not about whales, but about cycling. Those who watch the Tour de France will understand the reference immediately.
I was honored to be interviewed once again by J. Timothy Quirk on Nutmeg Chatter, which is broadcast on numerous radio stations and is available as a podcast here. We discuss Oliver Ellsworth, Eli Whitney, Bun Lai, Prudence Crandall, Katharine Hepburn, and more of Connecticut's "vanguard."
Is it weird that I'm more excited about my wife's imminent book release than two of my own?
