Happy Henry Day!
This week marks the 166th anniversary of Henry Brown’s amazing escape from slavery. On March 23, 1849, Henry Brown was sealed inside a wooden box, 3 feet by 2 feet by 2-1/2 feet in size.

I recently had the privilege of talking about Henry Brown and my novel, The Disappearing Man, on the CiLiving show on CBS in Champaign. Check out the interview at this link:
