* New today: I just gave an interview to Talking With Tim, in which I discuss several of my recent book projects, including The Magic Goblet, Past Watchful Dragons: Fantasy and Faith in the World of C.S. Lewis, and Tecumseh: A Biography, as well as my upcoming appearances and other subjects. You can read it here.
* I will be taking part in the Voices Film Series for the Hickory, NC community, a project that is co-sponsored by Lenoir-Rhyne College and the Women's Resource Center in Hickory. This program, which is free and open to the public, will take place on the evenings of February 27 and 28, 2008, and will focus on Native America. We will be showing two Native-produced films over two nights: first the award-winning 2006 film Four Sheets to the Wind, and next the award-winning 2006 documentary Trail of Tears: Cherokee Legacy paired with comments and a book signing (of The Trail of Tears and Indian Removal) by yours truly. I hope those who are interested will visit here to learn more. We would love to have you join us for these two evenings!
