Join me TOMORROW NIGHT at 7pm on WMPG-FM (Gorham) 90.9 on "Making Contact" featuring an interview with New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer who has a new book out entitled "The Lincoln Conspiracy: The Secret Plot to Kill America's 16th President--and Why It Failed" with Josh Mensch. It's a fascinating story about the little-known, but true story about a failed assassination attempt on President Abraham Lincoln before he's sworn into office as President of the United States and how the plot is uncovered and how Lincoln's life is saved by Pinkerton Agent Kate Warne, the first female detective! You can listen LIVE online at wmpg.org.

Please bring her to Maine Hillary Klug Do you know that I got started as a street performer? Seriously! My favorite thing about street performing is the audience interaction! I can have conversations and answer questions. I can inspire and teach children. Demonstrate the dance steps. Elaborate on the history and tradition. Or even give folks directions and tourism advice. I love the connection! Being personable in this increasingly separated and lonely smart phone world. 🙊 I love meeting folks from all fround the world!
I came across some stationery from 1975
