            WEST CHESTER _ Three events in North Carolina highlight author Bruce E. Mowday’s schedule for May. Mowday will appear in three states taking part in 10 events.

“I’m honored to be asked to participate in a number of special events this month,” Mowday said. “Besides the visit to North Carolina, I’ll take part in Parkesburg’s 150th anniversary celebration, a civil war event in Lancaster County and talks in Oxford and Bryn Mawr.”

The North Carolina events in Fayetteville revolve around his new book, Lafayette at Brandywine: The Making of an American Hero. On May 12 at 7 p.m. he will talk before the Fayetteville Light Infantry Company and on May 13 and May 14 he will have book signings at City Center Gallery & Books.

“Lafayette played a prominent role in the winning of freedom in America,” Mowday said. “To give a talk in a town named for Lafayette is special.” Mowday will give a talk on Lafayette on May 26 before the Oxford Area Historical Society at 7:00 p.m. at the town’s Presbyterian Church.

A special presentation on Lafayette is scheduled at the Brandywine River Museum of Art in Chadds Ford on June 2. “This is a special venue as the museum is part of the battlefield where Lafayette was wounded fighting for our freedom on September 11, 1777.”

Mowday will be signing his Lafayette book and his other works from 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at the 150th anniversary celebration of the founding of Parkesburg on Friday, May 20.
