Holiday Book Signings and Special Events brighten the December calendar

JHU Press authors will be contributing mightily to the holiday spirit in December with a grueling (but jolly!) schedule of book signings and special programs.  Especially in the Baltimore area, where JHUP’s regional books have long been popular holiday gifts, authors such as Mike Olesker, Bryan MacKay, Ted Patterson, and Dean Smith will be meeting, greeting, schmoozing, and signing throughout the month.  December highlights include “JHU Press Night” at Baltimore’s Ivy Bookshop on the 4th and Ron Coddington’s talk at the National Archives (about his Faces of the Civil War trilogy) on the 7th.  Holiday list-makers, take note: for the shopping list, please add JHU Press books and journals for your nearest and dearest; for the to-do list, remember to spread the word about our December activities!  Happy holidays!
