"Books brought to you with the help of Uncle Sam" as WaPo's Ron Charles put it. I'm just thrilled to be among the 22 writers named as 2018-19 National Endowment for the Humanities Public Scholars. This grant will help me complete my book on sister novelists Jane and Anna Maria Porter. The NEH has been so crucial to advancing our knowledge of history, literature, and culture, and has been a formative positive force for me throughout my career. I'm incredibly grateful for this support.
