Claiborne Pell bio set for Fall 2011 release!

I have reached agreement with the prestigious University Press of New England to publish my biography of the late Senator Claiborne Pell, which I finished writing earlier this year after a year of work. The book will be on the publisher's Fall 2011 list, which means we can expect lots of attention starting in about September, quite possibly with a book launch in Newport, the senator's home.
I am delighted with publisher UPNE, a consortium of the Dartmouth College, Northeastern University, University of Vermont, University of New Hampshire and Brandeis University presses with a distinguished list of titles and a powerful marketing reach in the region and beyond (and partnerships with other publishers). The editorial board and marketing and sales people at UPNE are enthusiastically behind the book, which portends good things! More details as they emerge...

Roger L. Miller, 1913 - 2002

My father, a good and gentle man, died eight years ago today. I still miss him.
This is the eulogy I delivered at his funeral. God speed, Dad!
