Virtual Book Tour for Steering to Freedom starts tomorrow!

Pat at MIT reading croppedSeptember saw three readings of Steering to Freedom--at Porter Square Books, the Old State House Museum, and at MIT. I'm grateful to all the sponsors who brought me in and to all the book lovers and my friends who showed up to hear me read and talk about Robert Smalls. I never get tired of talking about this amazing man and his adventures during the Civil War.

Though my in person readings and signings are finished for a little while (I hope to do another at a Lab Rats show in November), I'm still working hard on spreading the word about Steering to Freedom. For this book, I'm trying something a little more ambitious. Tomorrow, I start on a virtual book tour, a blog tour on 16 different blogs, from October 5-30. I set up the tour through Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours
