This thread could serve as a gathering point for those historical questions or other queries that you might want to pose to the New York Historical Society and Jim.
The first question that I have is when is the New York Historical Society going to join the discussion? We really are looking forward to it. That was one of the reasons that I decided to participate and purchase the book.
Second question: How is that moderation from the New York Historical Society going to occur and in what capacity? Will there be multiple moderators, Jim or someone else? I haven't seen any postings from Jim since 8/31 (prior to the start of the book club itself)and was wondering if something had changed or is he on vacation? It would be nice for someone from B&N to just pop in and let us know. Thanks in advance.

Dear Bentley and all - First of all, thanks for all your involvement and especially for the new threads. I'm somewhat new to this and have only been actively watching up to now, but I have just posted a few replies. There are other moderators like myself who are volunteers to the New-York Historical Society who are lined up to discuss books in the future. I also will avail The New-York Historical Society Library team to address some detailed historical questions. Looking forward to our continuing interest.
Glad you are safe. I was about to send out my pointer looking for you. Thank you for posting and letting us know what's up. I was personally delighted when I discovered that the New York Historical Society Library team was going to be involved.
Glad also that I could help; but I did not want to miss out this month on some good discussion of this excellent book. The threads should be able to separate parts of the discussions to avoid spoilers, etc. and keep discussion topics together. Now that you are back, I am sure that you will have great ideas for other additional threads.
