Happy Birthday, Lady Liberty!

The Statue of Liberty is 125 years old today! Here's an illustration I did for the book, Lady Liberty: A Biography, of Sculptor Auguste Bartholdi waiting inside the crown during the big unveiling ceremony on October 28, 1886.

Baseball Night at Barnes and Noble!

The World Series starts tonight! To celebrate, join me and award-winning baseball writer/historian Mark Stang at Barnes and Noble in Saugus, Massachusetts tonight at 7pm. We'll be signing books and talking baseball. Should be a lot of fun!
