Weekend Round-Up

  • Fans of Barbara Babcock’s Woman Lawyer, a biography of Clara Foltz, can find the stops of her book tour this fall here.
  • A thoughtful story about Daniel Sharfstein’s The Invisible Line: Three American Families and the Secret Journey from Black to White appears in the on-line magazine Diverse: Issues in Higher Education. Sharfstein will appear at George Mason University’s annual fall book festival, September 18-23, and the Southern Festival of Books, October 14-16, in Nashville, Tennessee.
  • The UK National Archives has expanded the license of the Anglo-American Legal Tradition (AALT) website at the University of Houston.
