Opportunities abounding now and in the future for media and in-person appearances for CAR CRAZY.
This weekend, Dec. 19 and 20, C-SPAN2 Book TV re-broadcast my talk about writing and the early days of the auto industry that was first broadcast on December 14. The broadcast was from the taping of the book launch party to a full house at the Pell Center in Newport, Rhode Island, last month. View the broadcast.
Also this weekend, the national PBS show White House Chronicle aired my discussion of the birth of the automobile, the revolutionary nature of Henry Ford's Model T, and more with host LLewellyn King. The episode was also on Voice of America Television and Sirius XM Radio's Channel 124. King said, and I thank him: "Absolutely extraordinary... Get this book! Fascinating."
Coming soon: a podcast about the cultural & economic impact of the motor vehicle, with Pell Center head Jim Ludes asking the questions. I am a center fellow & director of the Story in the Public Square program.
I will sign books and present a seminar, "Barney Oldfield, Henry Ford and the Birth of American Auto Racing," at the annual meeting of the Antique Automobile Club of America, the nation's leading classic- and vintage-car group. The meeting will be held in Philadelphia the weekend of Feb. 11, 2016. Come join us!
There is much more to come, of course, as we continue to schedule events. Among the places we have been already:
-- Drive Thru Radio, AM-790, Providence, with the Zangari brothers.
-- Barrington Books Retold, a signing; Barrington Public Library, a presentation. Details here.
-- Steve Klamkin's Saturday show on WPRO-630 am and 99.7-FM.
-- The launch party in Newport, R.I., where we had four classic cars, each more than 100 years old, running and giving rides. Watch great video of the cars in action.
