Tonight I gave a short address about The Way of Improvement Leads Home to the annual meeting of the “Friends of the Murray Library” at Messiah College. It was a great night. I found many to be very engaged with Fithian’s story and several attendees, including one very bright student, asked some excellent questions. The “Friends” do wonderful work in support of Messiah’s Murray Library. They run an annual book sale, support a host of special book collections, and fund student research projects.
I also met a reader of this blog who was aware that I was heading to Greenwich this weekend for the commemoration of the tea burners monument! It gave me an opportunity to talk a bit about Fithian’s role in this event.
Thanks to Phil L. for inviting me. Cherie F. for hosting me. And Jocelyn C. for helping me with the book signing.
