I am very busy doing a lot of press and preparing for the upcoming premiere of our film The Angel of Marye’s Heights (July 24th - details below). Once this event passes and I am able to catch my breath, I will be back posting at a normal pace. Stay tuned for updates on the Jefferson book project, as well as my next feature in PAR magazine on Ben Franklin and our currency. I am also trying to pitch a lunch review and essay on Gadsby’s Tavern. There will be plenty to share over on the film’s website too including video, photos, and press links from the opening. Thanks for your patience and I hope to see you at one of our screenings.
