Weekend Roundup

  • KALA, a public radio station associated with St. Ambrose College in Davenport, Iowa, has been nominated for a prize for its interview of Scott Gerber, Ohio Northern Law, on Jefferson and the Bill of Rights. The interview is here.
  • Julius (Jay) Wachtel, a lecturer at California State University, Fullerton, has recently published Stalin's Witnesses, “a deeply researched, meticulously documented historical novel.” It “tells the story of the Soviet terror through the eyes of Vladimir Romm, a real-life Soviet intelligence officer who served as the USSR's inaugural correspondent to Washington. Based on foreign and domestic archives, interviews with descendants and a wealth of secondary sources, Stalin's Witnesses applies a light fictional touch to give voice to Romm and four fellow 'witnesses' who were forced to give false testimony at the 1937 Moscow Show Trial.”  More.
