Lovejoy Book Update

Congrats to the four winners of the September paperback giveaway for Elijah Lovejoy’s Fight for Freedom! See the entry page for the list. And thanks to all who have expressed interest in the book. As I watch so many conversations about different dimensions of freedom being debated and protested today, I feel Lovejoy’s legacy. He would be front and center writing fiery words to push for meaningful change. Remember to take advantage of the free extras for use with class projects or if you're just curious about Lovejoy and his times.
