Soon. Really soon. The publication date was recently moved from February to March, so there’s been a slight delay. One thing I’ve learned throughout this process is that there are a lot of moving parts. I had my deadlines, but there were many others involved who provided peer reviews of the text, proofread it, provided the graphic design for the pages, wrote blurbs, authorized use of certain images, and so on. That’s a lot of cooperation, and the originally projected timeline doesn’t always match up with reality by the time we all make our contributions and deal with inevitable complications. Early February wasn’t realizable, as it turns out, but mid-March is. So March, 2012 it is!
There may be advance copies available for my Feb. 23rd lecture and *possible* book signing–I’m hoping! But if not, my first signing will be on March 15th at the Library of Virginia. ALSO, the Richmond Theater Fire will most likely be available later that evening for purchase and signing after the Historic Richmond Foundation Winter Lecture.
