Don Graves has passed on an open invitation to a book signing being held by his wife and fellow historian, Dianne Graves. Dianne's new book is In the Midst of Alarms: The Untold Story of Women and the War of 1812 published by Robin Brass Studio. The signing will take place in the Nicholas Hoare Bookstore, 419 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, from 7.00 to 8.30 p.m. on Thursday, 1 November.
This book provides an extensive examination of the subject and includes discussions of topics ranging from love, courtship, and marriage to work to military spouses to high society to women in combat, as well as extracts from contemporary documentation.
Don also adds, in typical fashion, that the bookstore "is conveniently located across the street from the US Embassy in case you wish to emigrate and the National Gallery is a stone's throw away in case you want a more intellectual activity. Also, the Earl of Sussex Pub is two doors down the street if you wish to talk to her husband."
