Mailbox Monday #141


It has been a few slow weeks around here – and like the last time, these books didn’t come in my mailbox, they were purchased by me. 

I went to a reading/author event with Maryanne O’Hara at RJ Julia on Thursday and picked up a copy of Cascade and had it signed. 

I also picked up (on a whim) Founding Myths by Ray Raphael while at Old Sturbridge Village this weekend.  This one sounded interesting and called out to me. 

With wit and flair, Founding Myths exposes the errors and inventions in thirteen of America’s most cherished tales, from Paul Revere’s famous ride to Patrick Henry’s “Liberty or Death” speech. Exploring the dynamic intersection between history-making and story-making, award-winning author and historian Ray Raphael shows how these fictions—conceived in the narrowly nationalistic politics of the nineteenth century—undermine our democratic ideals.

And that’s all I got.  How about you?

Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and for the month of May it is being hosted by 4 The Love of Books.

  5. Founding Myths sounds like a very cool book and one I would like. Still have never been to Old Sturbridge Village, but it's on my list for the next time I'm in Boston and have a bit of free time.

    1. I hope you get a chance to go to OSV. It is fun and a very relaxing experience if nothing else. We are members so sometimes when we just want to get out of the apartment and walk around we will go there.
