Press book signing and Madeira tasting scheduled for Dec. 9

More than a dozen authors will be on hand from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 9, when the Johns Hopkins University Press and Homewood Museum host their annual Holiday Book Signing and Madeira Tasting.

Among those who will sign their books are Mike Gesker, The Orioles Encyclopedia; Joseph R.L. Sterne, Combat Correspondents; and David W. Harp and Tom Horton, The Nanticoke. In addition, a display will feature JHU Press books published in 2009 that were written or edited by university colleagues, many of whom will be in attendance.

The museum will be decorated for the holidays and the shop stocked with gifts and cards.
