On Saturday, October 26th from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm, The Harvard Coop was transformed into a reader's delight at this inaugural Harvard Alumni Author book event, co-sponsored by The Harvard Coop & Harvard Magazine.
ALL members of the Cambridge and Greater Boston community were invited to come meet the 15 authors, including J. Chester Johnson, browse to their heart's content, and buy books. Free snacks, and other special offers for attendees were included!
Biographers, critics, historians, journalists, memoirists, novelists, playwrights, and poets.....Harvard alumni have published diverse works across all literary genres.
This was a FREE event.
I sold and personally signed my three most recent books: St. Paul’s Chapel & Selected Shorter Poems (2010); Now And Then: Selected Longer Poems (2017); and Auden, the Psalms, and Me (2017). I also shared information about my forthcoming book to be released in May, 2020, published by Pegasus Books: Damaged Heritage: The Elaine Race Massacre And A Story of Reconciliation.
Thank you for coming.
