In Atchison

Had a wonderful time last night at the Atchison Library giving my first reading for Song of the Jayhawk, not to mention the festivities at the Amelia Earhart Festival and a visit to the Kansas History Center in Topeka. This is the actual flag the mob attached to Pardee Butler’s rEasternAidExpressaft when they sent him down the river in the novel’s opening scene.

And, many thanks to Mary Meyers and the Atchison Globe for the press (sub required)! Mary and I talked Atchison history for a couple hours and had a great time.
