Author to Sign Book about People Sold into Slavery
David Fiske will be signing copies of his latest book, Solomon Northup’s Kindred: The Kidnapping of Free Citizens before the Civil War, at the Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza, on Saturday, March 12, 2016, 3 pm.
Solomon Northup’s Kindred has earned praise from reviewers. Harvard’s Henry Louis Gates, Jr. has observed that: “Fiske’s efforts to document these victims and the crimes that robbed them of their families and freedom are heroic indeed and should be applauded.”
