Happy Holidays with whatever traditions you hold. It has been a wonderful year for me with the first non-fiction book coming out and now another is on the way making the new year look just as bright. On January 19, the History Press will release my second history book called "Teddy Roosevelt and the Marquette Libel Trial." It tells the story of an Ishpeming Newspaper editor that called Theodore Roosevelt a "Drunk" in print. Roosevelt as we know now, thanks to this trial, rarely drank, his passion and enthusiasm had been mistakenly interpreted as alcoholic intoxication. The trial would completely change the public perception of one of our greatest Presidents. If you want to read more, my feature article, Roosevelt Takes Marquette
, gives an abreviated version of the story. Check it out and enjoy one of the wildest historic moments in Upper Peninsula history. The book will be much more detailed and will include photographs of Roosevelt and the trial that have never been seen before!
In keeping with the release of the new book, I will be doing a book signing here in Sault Ste. Marie at Island Books and Crafts on February 7. That's a Saturday and I will be there all afternoon. There will be another author signing with me, Michael Carrier, author of the Jack Handler series. Should be a great time so mark it on your calendars.
Have a great Holiday Season and I will be back on in January.
