I’m going to be giving a talk about my book Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York, at the Merchant’s House Museum, 29 East Fourth Street.
UPDATE: I just learned that we are rescheduling this for October. I will be back when we’ve worked out the new date.
On September 29th, I’ll be at the History Book Festival in Lewes, DE, where I will be interviewed about my book and the history of Blackwell’s Island by the esteemed Dr. Jeffrey Fried (Blanche Wiesen Cook is giving the keynote address for the conference, by the way!).
From the launch event for my book, hosted by Untapped Cities.
