Back in April, I declared that November would be Bourbon Book Month—and here we are! Potomac Books has two fantastic titles now available: Bourbon Justice: How Whiskey Law Shaped America by Brian F. Haara and Bourbon and Bullets: True Stories of Whiskey, War, and Military Service by John C. Tramazzo.
Bourbon Justice approaches the history of bourbon whiskey from a legal standpoint. Bourbon and Bullets highlights the relationship between bourbon and military service to show the rich and dramatic connection in American history.
Two bourbon books, two new histories, one great excuse to celebrate throughout the month of November.
Meet Brian on Nov. 25 at the Man-O-War Barnes & Noble location in Lexington, KY from 1:00-3:30 p.m.
And you can meet John this month on Nov. 26 at Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, KY from 9:00-11:30 a.m. and afterward at Poor Richard’s Bookstore from 5:00-6:00 p.m. On Nov. 27, John will be at the Frazier History Museum for a ticketed event in Louisville, KY.
And if you’re searching for other
booze book activities, White Elm Brewing Company is hosting a pop-up bookshop on November 11 in Lincoln, NE from 2:00-4:00 p.m.
The bourbon celebration will continue into the new year with more great events, including a book signing with Brian on Feb. 7 at Carmichael’s Bookstore in Louisville, KY.
