To readers and fans of “Tasting Freedom” in Ohio,  please come and join us for our second event in Cleveland — at 2 p.m. inside the Western Reserve Historical Society, one of the premier historical research centers in Ohio and in the country. After our talk, we’ll be signing books.

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.
