Book launch party for "American Queen"

My book launch party on October 30 at the Redeye Grill in Manhattan was a big success. About 40 attended, including a dozen descendants of Kate Chase, and one of Nettie's great grandsons. Ninety-two-year old Ann Donaldson, who knew Kate's daughters Ethel and Portia, was there. Several  people came in period costume, among them professor Richard Vangermeersch as Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase. Photos of the event can be seen on my Facebook page and here:

Release of "American Queen"

I'm throwing a book launch party in New York on October 30 to mark the occasion, complete with "period" costumes (optional). Friends, ex-colleagues, family, my publisher, and some fellow BIO (Biographers International Organization) members will be there. Special guests include about 10 living descendants of Kate Chase and her famous father, Salmon P. Chase.
