Book talks, interviews, and more coming in May

By Jack Holmes

Throughout the year, JHU Press authors, editors, and staff members are on the road, in the air, and on the air, getting the word out about our latest publications. As a new monthly feature of the blog, we’ll offer a round-up of the coming month’s events, interviews, and book signings at bookstores, libraries, museums, conferences, and other venues. We’ll aim to not be too Baltimore-centric (but they don’t call this Charm City for nothing!). 

Come on out and enjoy these opportunities to connect with our authors, editors, and audiences. And, of course, we love it when you help spread the word. Here’s what’s happening in May:
