Come say hello, and hear me read

Posted by James McPherson on October 8, 2008

I’ll be reading and signing copies of my latest book, The Conservative Resurgence and the Press: The Media’s Role in the Rise of the Right, at Borders Books, 9980 N. Newport Hwy., in Spokane tomorrow (Thursday) at 7 p.m. I hope to see you there.

It’s been an interesting week. I was interviewed by a newspaper reporter from Lewiston, Idaho, earlier today, and by a documentary/educational videographer from Texas a few days ago. I enjoyed both interviews somewhat, though frankly I’m more comfortable being the one who is asking the questions.
