National Library Week promises to end with a bang here in Philadelphia.
In a change of pace from our usual presence at academic meetings and conferences, Penn Press will be part of the Free Library Festival this weekend. This fun, open air event on Philadelphia's Benjamin Franklin Parkway gives us an opportunity to meet people in the wider community and introduce our excellent books to our neighbors.
Penn Press people will be at booth #5, located on 19th Street just above Vine Street, both Saturday, April 17 and Sunday, April 18 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
On Sunday, April 18 from noon to 1:00 p.m., author Lisa Rosner with her specimen skull will be available to sign her latest book
The Anatomy Murders: Being the True and Spectacular History of Edinburgh's Notorious Burke and Hare and of the Man of Science Who Abetted Them in the Commission of Their Most Heinous Crimes. Rosner will provide a a little chilling history on what we hope will be an otherwise warm and sunny day.
If you are in the Philadelphia area this weekend, we hope you'll stop by.
