Video Time: Back to Buxton!

Elijah of Buxton by Christopher Paul Curtis

Elijah of Buxton by Christopher Paul Curtis

In our latest podcast, Nancy and I revealed the answer to our historical fiction Mystery Book Theater: Elijah of Buxton by Christopher Paul Curtis.

Now, you may have been so distracted by the description of Elijah’s barfing that you missed this, but another thing we mentioned in the podcast is a video of Christopher Paul Curtis where he goes to visit Buxton.

If you zoned out during that part of the podcast, I can’t say I blame you because I know from experience that unexpected puking can really steal the show (don’t ask how I know; I just do, okay?).

But it would be a shame if that amazing video got buried under all the vomit (not unlike Frederick Douglass did in the book). So we’re bringing the video right to you. Get excited:

And if you’ve ever been to Buxton yourself, leave a comment telling us all about your visit! Or leave a comment with your thoughts on the book!
