Advance copies of Walt Bachman‘s Northern Slave, Black Dakota are here! Pond Dakota Press will have copies available for sale and signing this Sunday, February 24, 2013 at Bachman’s Black History Month event, “Northern Slaves: How the U.S. Army Brought Slavery to Minnesota.” Bachman’s talk begins at 2:00 PM. We expect a capacity crowd, so come early to get a good seat.
The book sale opens at 1:30 PM. The cover price is $34.95. But thanks to Legacy Grant and donor funding, we are selling advance copies for $29.95. Northern Slave, Black Dakota is 412 pages in hardcover, with 12 illustrations, 3 maps, bibliography and index. The official release date is March 12, 2013.
Bachman’s talk is sponsored by the Bloomington Human Rights Commission and will be held at the Creekside Community Center, 9801 Penn Avenue South (the corner of 98th and Penn) in Bloomington, MN. The best parking is available in the large lot behind the building (lot entrance on 98th); you can also enter the building from that side.
Hope to see you there!
