Author events and exhibits fill the calendar for December and the new year

Our December calendar begins with some terrific author events and ends with preparations for the new year’s onslaught of academic meetings. As always, we appreciate your help in spreading the word about JHUP’s events and activities. And never forget, please, that books and journal subscriptions from the Press make most excellent gifts. Best wishes to you and yours for the holiday season from all of us at Johns Hopkins University Press!

Dane Morrison
True Yankees: The South Seas & the Discovery
of American Identity

Portsmouth Athenaeum
9 Market Square
Portsmouth, NH

Drawing on private journals, letters, ships’ logs, memoirs, and newspaper accounts, True Yankees traces America’s earliest encounters on a global stage through the exhilarating experiences of five Yankee seafarers. The accounts of these adventurous travelers reveal how they and hundreds of other mariners and expatriates influenced the ways in which Americans defined themselves, thereby creating a genuinely brash national character—the “true Yankee.” Readers who love history and stories of exploration on the high seas will devour this gripping tale. 5:30 p.m. in the Reading Room.

Admission: Free and open to the public, seating is limited and reservations are recommended; for information or to register, call 603-431-2538 or visit the Athenaeum calendar.
