February Events for African American Doctors of World War I

This month, meet the authors of African American Doctors of World War I (“prodigious… promises to captivate”—Library Journal) at two events in the Washington, D.C. area!

On Thursday, February 18, authors W. Douglas Fisher and Joann H. Buckley will be the featured speakers at the Army Historical Foundation’s first exhibit in The Soldier Experience Series. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. in the AUSA Conference and Event Center (Arlington, Virginia). Seating is limited, and guests are encouraged to RSVP here. Books will be available for purchase at the event.

On Saturday, February 20th, both authors will participate in the Association for the Study of African American Life and History’s 90th Annual Black History Luncheon. The Featured Authors’ Book Signing is free to attend and begins at 10:00 a.m., to be followed by a luncheon (tickets required) at 12:15.  Both events will be held at the Washington Rennaisance Hotel, and books will be available to purchase at the signing.

Fisher and Buckley discussed the book in a recent episode of The Macarthur Memorial’s World War I Podcast Series. Listen here, or download the podcast from iTunes.
