World-Class History, Acknowledged

Philadelphia will be named the first U.S. World Heritage  City, Just so.

Only mildly ironic and a strangely appropriate  coincidence it was  that I became aware of this yesterday.

Last night’s Meet The Author event went well. Author met some fine people and interested readers. Get yourself a copy of Shot Tower. Click here to sign on to the newsletter for reliable news of more events and other big doings.

In the brief talk I gave one of the themes was how, for all the fabulous world-class history here, there is an amount of overlooked history.

The Shot Tower is such. Its iconic image  represents the birth of the American arms industry.

Lighting may have been less than adequate at Frank’s last night but it gave me a halo.
