Received from the author:

I am pleased to announce that my book, Dred & Harriet Scott: Their Family Story, has arrived from the printer and copies are now available for sale. The book is being published by St. Louis County Library and will be sold at all of our library branches. The price of the book is $25.00 + $3 shipping & handling. Ordering information should be available on the Special Collections Department’s home page later this week at If the library also signs with a distributor, then the book could also be available through bookstores. I’m still waiting to hear about that.

Although I am starting to do radio and print media interviews, the initial author event/book signing will be held Friday, February 5th at 7:00 p.m. in St. Louis County Library Headquarters’ Main Reading Room. Lynne Jackson, great-great-granddaughter of Dred and Harriet and President of the Dred Scott Heritage Foundation will offer introductory remarks and then introduce me. I will talk briefly about the book that evening, show some key documents via PowerPoint, do a question and answer session, and then sign books. For more information, check the library’s website, the library’s foundation blog (scroll down to Feb. 5th), or call the library (314) 994-3300.

Please feel free to share forward this information to anyone who you think may be interested.
