In Search of the Slave Who Defied George Washington

More than a century before the first Women's History Month in the United States, an incredible woman named Ona Judge made her mark on history. A slave to Martha and George Washington, Judge fled Mount Vernon and continued to evade the President for years as he attempted to capture her. A new book, NEVER CAUGHT, by Erica Armstrong Dunbar, details Judge's life on the run.

“We have the famous fugitives, like Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass,” Ms. Dunbar, a professor of black studies and history at the University of Delaware, said in an interview in Mount Vernon’s 18th-century-style food court. “But decades before them, Ona Judge did this. I want people to know her story.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/06/arts/george-washington-mount-vernon-slavery.html?_r=0

An exhibition at Mount Vernon and a new book return the spotlight to Ona Judge, who evaded George and Martha Washington’s dogged efforts to recapture her.

Science of Hitting

Congratulations to the Chicago Cubs 2016 team on a historic World Series win!! Last night the Cubs ended a 108-year championship drought in a tense 10-inning game against the Cleveland Indians resulting in a 8-7 win.

Both teams, and numerous others in baseball, have benefited from the classic Ted Williams book Science of Hitting. Ty Van Burkleo, the Cleveland Indians’ hitting coach, as well as Mike Bryant, father of Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant, are great fans of the batting lessons in Science of Hitting.

Congratulations to our Simon & Schuster author Bob Dylan!

BREAKING NEWS
The 2016 ‪Nobel Prize‬ in Literature is awarded to

Bob Dylan

“for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition”.

Age: 75
Born: May 24, 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota, USA

Press release: goo.gl/HUOKrG

Biobibliographical notes in English: goo.gl/6Aif1b

Biobibliographical notes

Bob Dylan was born on May 24, 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota. He grew up in a Jewish middle-class family in the city of Hibbing. As a teenager he played in various bands and with time his interest in music deepened, with a particular passion for American folk music and blues. One of his idols was the folk singer Woody Guthrie. He was also influenced by the early authors of the Beat Generation, as well as by modernist poets.

Dylan moved to New York in 1961 and began to perform in clubs and cafés in Greenwich Village. He met the record producer John Hammond with whom he signed a contract for his debut album, called Bob Dylan (1962). In the following years he recorded a number of albums which have had a tremendous impact on popular music: Bringing It All Back Home and High-way 61 Revisited in 1965, Blonde On Blonde in 1966 and Blood On The Tracks in 1975. His productivity continued in the following decades, resulting in masterpieces like Oh Mercy (1989), Time Out Of Mind (1997) and Modern Times (2006).

Dylan’s tours in 1965 and 1966 attracted a lot of attention. For a period he was accompa-nied by film maker D. A. Pennebaker, who documented life around the stage in what would come to be the movie Dont Look Back (1967). Dylan has recorded a large number of albums revolving around topics like the social conditions of man, religion, politics and love. The lyrics have continuously been published in new editions, under the title Lyrics. As an artist, he is strikingly versatile; he has been active as painter, actor and scriptwriter.

Besides his large production of albums, Dylan has published experimental work like Taran-tula (1971) and the collection Writings and Drawings (1973). He has written the autobiog-raphy Chronicles (2004), which depicts memories from the early years in New York and which provides glimpses of his life at the center of popular culture. Since the late 1980s, Bob Dylan has toured persistently, an undertaking called the “Never-Ending Tour”. Dylan has the status of an icon. His influence on contemporary music is profound, and he is the object of a steady stream of secondary literature.

The Summer of 1787

Happy #ConstitutionDay! We're remembering the sweltering summer when George Washington, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin and our other founding fathers drafted the most famous document in American law. David O. Stewart's The Summer of 1787 details the work and challenges during the four months leading up to September 17, 1787 when the document was signed at the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia.

The Summer of 1787 takes us into the sweltering room in which the founding fathers struggled for four months to produce the Constitution: the flawed...
