Now Appearing in the Land O’Goshen….

Just a reminder that I’ll be speaking tonight before the Goshen Historical Preservation Society, at 7:30 p.m. at the Church of the Nazarene in Goshen, Maryland.

Come join the fun as I give what I call my E! True Hollywood Story talk:

  • LAUGH! as Irving dances with the “fine, portly, buxom dame” Dolley Madison (even as he finds President Madison to be a depressing “withered apple-john”!)
  • CHEER! as Irving assists Martin van Buren in negotiating the West Indies trade agreement!
  • SWOON! as Frankenstein novelist Mary Shelley tries to put the moves on Irving!
  • HISS! as Edgar Allan Poe and James Fenimore Cooper flatter Irving to his face, then stab him in the back!
  • APPLAUD! as Irving hosts a public dinner for Charles Dickens in New York City (but botches the speech)!

And much, much more!

Come on, it’ll be fun! And I even made sure it wasn’t on a Presidential debate night.

I’ll be speaking for at least 30 minutes and taking questions for as long as you want to ask them. I’ll be happy to sign books — and if you don’t yet have one (I know the Borders and B&Ns in the immediate area are sold out), there’ll be a limited number available for sale, if you’re so inclined.

More details can be found here.

  1. It’s a bit far for me to drive, but have a great evening!

    If you come back to NYC, let me know.
