June book talks, interviews, and more

June may be the start of vacation season, but JHU Press authors and editors are hard at work meeting the public, engaging readers, and spreading the word about their publications. From Baltimore’s Enoch Pratt Free Library, to NPR’s Diane Rehm Show, to the lively online discussion at the Firedoglake Book Salon, Press authors and staff are launching the summer season with energy and style. Drop by, listen in, join the chat, and spread the word about these upcoming events. And take time to enjoy the start of your summer (reading) season too!
