Off to Moscow (Idaho, of course)–come say hello

Posted by James McPherson on November 10, 2008

Tomorrow afternoon I’ll guest lecture at the University of Idaho, from which my wife, daughter, father, brother, sister, sister-in-law and son-in-law all have degrees. Yes, we’re an overeducated family, especially considering our history–though I didn’t attend UI, my brother and I both have doctorates, and my wife, father, sister and sister-in-law each have at least one master’s degree.

After the lecture from 5:30 to 7 p.m. I’ll read and sign books at BookPeople of Moscow, one of my favorite bookstores (along with Powell’s in Portland, Auntie’s in Spokane, and the Elliot Bay Book Co. in Seattle). Of course I’m also fond of the Borders Books in North Spokane, which invited me to do my first reading and treated me very well.
