WALK WITH JENNY WHERE IT HAPPENED.
*LEXINGTON & CONCORD * VIRGINIA
*NEW YORK *BOSTON *PHILADELPHIA
Readers frequently ask to come along with Jenny on her research adventures, so she decided to grant their request! Rather than do simple book signings in stores, she decided to take readers into the field. She will lead a series of walking tours at key historical sites featured in her new book The Declaration, the Sword, and the Spy The tour kicks off at Lexington Green on April 19th in the place and on the day the first shots of the American Revolution were fired. She'll talk about the history, her research and writing process to tell the story, and read an excerpt from the book. Re-enactors will be at some locales, and book signings will follow. Don't miss these exciting events that will bring history alive as never before - you never know what's going to happen when Jenny goes where history lives. You're bound to make history yourself!
Each locale will work differently, depending on the historical sites. Some sites will require admission and some are free. Registration is required so we may plan accordingly for limited space. We are still mapping out details in some locales, so check back here for new information on dates, times, locations and registration details.
