We have what sounds like a fun “twofer” at our local library, the Walnut West branch at 40th and Walnut Streets. First we’re talking to the library’s book club, who’ve been reading Tasting Freedom for the past month. Then at 6:45 p.m., we switch audiences and talk to a larger group from the University City neighborhood until about 7:30 or 8 p.m. Sounds like a good Monday night — and it’s all free.

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.

Video Introduction



We like to talk. Our publicist put us in front of a video camera, asked three questions and then crossed his fingers. We're probably a little too serious at the beginning, but we loosen up as the video goes on.

A Call to Arms

Click to get a closer look, you can see the name of Octavius Catto at the bottom, as well as his father's.

This broadside is eight feet high and was seen on windows in downtown Philadelphia in June, 1863, as black leaders called a meeting to convince black men to join the Union Army prior to Gettysburg.
