Hello Dr. Brophy, I am one of the publicists for Sharon Ewell Foster, the novel's author. I'm happy to have come across your blog post. About a month ago, I also visited The Faculty Lounge read and shared with others the discussion of your visit to Southampton.

Here is a link to recent interview with Ms. Foster about Part One: The Witnesses.

History, as we know it, is about to change. In Sharon Ewell Foster's own words, “This is an American story and the truth needs to be told.”

She is preparing a national book tour (The Truth Tour) presented in a discussion format that will incorporate local leaders and educators, like yourself, as moderators.

If you'd like to review the book and/or be sent a press release, email me, Stanice at Anderson Tucker Dot Com. Again, thank you.

Hi Stanice if I may (and you should call me Al -- everyone else does),

I'm having trouble pulling up that youtube interview. If you'll email that to me, I'll link to it in the post.

Can't wait for the book -- I'm most excited to see in particular how Sharon Ewell Foster deals with Turner's relationship to abolitionists. A question that I often ask people when I'm talking about Turner is how much he was influenced by abolitionist literature, like David Walker's Appeal, versus an innate sense of freedom.

I too would like to see the YouTube interview but the link did not work for me, either. Please send it to DaveNeta at DaveNeta dot com. Having read ALL of Sharon Ewell Foster's other novels, I am eagerly awaiting this new 2-book novel about Nat Turner. What a writer!
