My book Wounded Houses ~ Shattered Lives is currently for sale in local stores and museums, and I am working on "MORE Wounded Houses~ Shattered Lives." However, thanks to my uncle, I now have an original autograph book from the 1938 Blue and Gray Reunion. A young lady from Adams County collected signatures and addresses of many attendees at the event. Then, this industrious young lady sent each veteran a letter. At a local auction, in a "box lot", my uncle was surprised to find the vintage autograph book along with many thank you letters received in response to her letter. What a rare treasure! Certainly this material from the past contains enough gems for a future book.
This summer I had the opportunity to present a power point about the 1863 civilian experiences during the battle and its aftermath at the Gettysburg Heritage Museum. How wonderful to have one of my former students in the audience!
In October I was honored to speak at the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg for the Camp Curtin Historical Society and Civil War Roundtable. The power point presentation featured many of the citizens featured in Wounded Houses - Shattered Lives. It was wonderful to present this same program at the Juniata County Library to a group of fellow educators in Delta Kappa Gamma

How exciting it has been to meet some of the faithful readers of my books! Thanks to Bernadette Loeffel-Atkins at Gettysburg Battlefield Books and Collectibles, and to Starr Steiner Fagerstrom at the Jennie Wade House for inviting me to do booksignings. In July I will be at the Heritage Center Museum for a booksigning and for a presentation about my newest book entitled Wounded Houses, Shattered Lives.
