The Slave Who Went to Congress can now be found in many local bookstores. If your local bookseller doesn’t have it in stock, ask that they please order several! We are working hard to get our book into the hands of the masses, who right now may be gifted with time due to the COVID-19 virus.

Be safe, and follow precautions. Use your extra time to read, write, start a new hobby, or get back into an old one. Gardening is a great option for some and watching birds is especially exciting at this time of year.

Nesting season is upon us and the birds are quite active. They are eating as much seed daily as I can put into the feeders…and I have several!
