Check this out: Last Friday a minor league hockey team that plays in Independence, Missouri, wore Harry Truman jerseys! Harry, of course, lived in Independence. After the game the jerseys were auctioned off as a fundraiser for the Truman Library. Man, I would love to get my hands on one of those jerseys!

Had a great turnout for my presentation at Pennridge High School last night, though that may have been due to the fact that students who attended qualified for extra credit! As a result, the crowd skewed about, oh, fifty years younger than my usual audience, and a lot of my jokes ("I sweat like Nixon") went over their heads, but it was a lot of fun. Many thanks to the Pennridge history department for organizing the event...

Check this out: Somebody is retracing Harry and Bess's trip using my book as a guide. They're making videos and posting them on YouTube. Pretty cool! Click here to watch them.

Hello! (Is this thing on?!) Sorry I haven't been posting more regularly. Been busy with guests and traveling. That's the life of a not-best-selling author. Anyway, a full update is forthcoming, but for now I wanted to let faithful readers know that I will be prattling on about my books tonight (Nov. 5) at 7 PM at Pennridge High School (my alma mater, doncha know) in Perkasie, Pa. Please come out. After all, there's no Phillies game on tonight.
