Things were hopping in Vincennes last night as a record crowd turned out for my book talk and signing at the Knox County Public Library. People spilled out into a second room and there was standing room only. A front page story appeared in the Sunday edition of the Vincennes Sun-Commerical and another story came out in Boomer Magazine just in time for the signing. A radio interview was to be aired today. The bookstore on Main Street reported selling out all their copies of Purcell Station and having a waiting list for more. I coudn’t have asked for a better turnout and it was great to see some old friends from the past. Hopefull we can do another event at the bookstore on Main Street in the near future.
Things are going well. I will be giving a talk and signing books at the Knox County Public Library in Vincennes on Monday, September 16, at 7 p.m. The Northwest Territory Genealogical Society is the host, but the public is welcome. They are hoping for a large turnout.
In August I did a book signing in Wilkinson, in Hancock County, at the reunion of Charlottesville High School. It was good to see so many old friends and be able to sign books. I appreciated their high level of interest.
