Sandy Smith, an old friend and veteran university pr man, has invited us to the next meeting of the Brothers Network book club, a group of African American men who meet to discuss books they have read. The 2 p.m. meeting will be in Philadelphia at Robin’s Books/Moonstone Arts Center, on 13th Street just off Sansom, on the second floor.

Meet the Authors

When they are not writing, Dan Biddle and Murray Dubin love to talk -- especially about the book. Invite them to speak to your book club, church, college class, civil war commemoration, fraternal group, library event, historical association meeting and more.
