“On Freedom” Road Author Event
March 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us at C. Burr Artz Library for this AARCH Society, Curious Iguana, and FCPL event welcoming David Goodrich back to Frederick for the release of his new book, On Freedom Road: Bicycle Explorations and Reckonings on the Underground Railroad. David will discuss his book, answer questions, and sign books. About the book: On Freedom Road enables us to see familiar places—New York and Philadelphia, New Orleans and Buffalo—in a very different light: from the vantage point of desperate people seeking to outrun the reach of slavery. Join in this journey to find the heroes and stories, both known and hidden, of the Underground Railroad.
Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event. Free and open to the public.
About the author: David Goodrich is the former head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Observations and Monitoring Program, and served as the Director of the UN Global Climate Observing System in Geneva, Switzerland.
