Press Release — Sam Riddleburger and Michael Hemphill, co-authors of the Civil War Time Travel Extravaganza “Stonewall Hinkleman and the Battle of Bull Run,” toasted each other with cups of Kvass* today, before Hemphill went off on a solo book tour of parts South. (Real South!)
Shortly after Hemphill returns, the two will join up for trips to parts North to share Stonewall Hinkleman with students, library patrons and (hopefully) bookstore customers. Perhaps a fresh bottle of Kvass will travel with them!
(Sharp-eyed viewers may note that Sam Riddleburger looks more like Tom Angleberger in this picture.)
*Kvass is a non-alcoholic soda sort of thing somehow related to rye. The brand here is from the Ukraine. Quite good! wikipedia/Kvass
