January 2, 2018 is coming to an end. Did you keep your head above water today? Every January 2nd I am bombarded with e-mails, requests, and reminders. Everyone is back at work and everyone needs something. Of course I am just as guilty on this front. Yes–I sent my fair share of “back to work” e-mails today.
Most of the e-mails I responded to today were related to upcoming speaking engagements. Here is where I will be in January:
January 3, 2018: I will be giving a lecture titled “Why Study History” at Brethren Village in Litiz, PA. This event is open to residents of the community.
January 5, 2018 (8:30–10:00am): I will be in Washington D.C. for the annual meeting of the American Historical Association and will chairing a session on Messiah College’s Digital Harrisburg Initiative.
January 5, 2018 (3:30-5:00pm): I will be chairing a session on the Bible in American Cultural and Political History at a joint meeting of the American Historical Association and the Conference on Faith and History
January 7, 14, 21, 28, 2018 (9:00 and 10:45): I am teaching a course called “Christian Politics?” at West Shore Evangelical Free Church in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
January 12, 2018: I will be co-leading a history teachers workshop on historical thinking for the New York State Association of Independent Schools at the Emma Willard School in Troy, New York.
January 21, 2018: I am heading back to Philip Vickers Fithian country for a lecture at the Cumberland County Historical Society in Greenwich, NJ titled “The Greenwich Tea Burning in History and Memory.” The lecture is free and open to the public.
I hope I see some of you out there!
We are already booking things for the Summer and Fall. Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump will be out in the late Spring and I will be hitting the road with the book. (Of course I am also available for lectures on themes related to any of my books). Perhaps we can make something work.
