Exhibits and book talks launch the new year

Winter’s chill and post-holiday doldrums are no match for the intrepid authors, editors, and staff of JHU Press, who will be as busy as ever in January with book signings, special events, and an array of academic meetings. Chicago, every discerning traveler’s winter destination, hosts both the APA and MLA meetings this month. Goshen, IN, will be keeping warm with a veritable Amish Quilts extravaganza, featuring several events with Janneken Smucker starting January 11. And already beautiful San Francisco and Santa Cruz will seem even better when Michael Wolfe reads from Cut These Words into My Stone on January 14 and 17. Please spread the word, keep warm, and launch your new year with the very best wishes of your friends at the JHU Press.
