Inheriting the TradeTom DeWolf will be bringing his book tour to New England during the next two weeks.

As readers of this blog know, Tom, a distant cousin of mine, has written a memoir entitled Inheriting the Trade: A North Family Confronts Its Legacy as the Largest Slave-Trading Dynasty in U.S. History. The book chronicles Tom’s journey of self-discovery as a descendant of the D’Wolf family of Bristol, R.I. and parallels the making of Traces of the Trade, the Sundance-nominated documentary which is scheduled to air on PBS in June.

Here is the schedule of Tom’s upcoming appearances in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut:

April 6, 3:00pm: The Rotch-Jones-Duff House & Garden Museum, 396 County Street, New Bedford, Massachusetts. Author reading, Q&A, book signing.
