Do you remember our video for our Book-of-the-MonthK Blows Top? Well join us in the Granny Smith Room Monday, September 23rd at 7:00pm as we welcome Peter Carlson  as he reads from his new book Junius and Albert's Adventures in the Confederacy: A Civil War Odyssey.

Junius Browne and Albert Richardson covered the Civil War for the New York Tribune until Confederates captured them as they tried to sneak past Vicksburg on a hay barge. Shuffled from one Rebel prison to another, they escaped and trekked across the snow-covered Appalachians with the help of slaves and pro-Union bushwhackers. Their amazing, long-forgotten odyssey is one of the great escape stories in American history, packed with drama, courage, horrors and heroics, plus moments of antic comedy. 

"Another irresistible story, engagingly told, from the pen of irresistible storyteller Peter Carlson. As with the best of non-fiction, it reads like a far-fetched novel." --Christopher Buckley 

Peter Carlson is the author of "K Blows Top," which has been optioned into a feature film. For many years, he was a reporter and columnist for the "Washington Post." He has also written for "Smithsonian" magazine, "American History," and the "Huffington Post." He lives in Rockville, MD.
