Adventures! Adventures!, or See you in May!

Sword and pen ; or, Ventures and adventures of Willard Glazier, in war and literature : comprising incidents and reminiscences of his childhood, his chequered life as a student and teacher, and his remarkable career as a soldier and author : embracing also the story of his unprecedented journey from ocean to ocean on horseback by John Algernon Owens (Philadelphia, P.W. Ziegler, 1881). pba02001, from the Wade Hall Collection of Southern History and Culture, Hoole Special Collections Library, The University of Alabama.

The coming months will have me fighting, with sword and pen (mostly pen -- well actually mouse and keyboard) as I research and write the book I have been working on. I will be on sabbatical leave and will return to Hoole, and to Cool@Hoole on Monday, May 17, 2010. Don't forget about this blog -- and have a healthy and happy new year! -- Jessica Lacher-Feldman
