It’s a good bet that it will be cold outside, but we’ll be cozy indoors as we speak at the morning Friday Forum of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Temple University’s center-city campus. In addition to OLLI students, this event is open to the public, so please stop by to Room 222, 1515 Market Street. We’ll be signing and selling books as well. The formal event is 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., but we’ll try and get there around 10 to chat with folks.

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

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.
