Freedom is the focus of book discussion at Wilm. U

A Pulitzer prize winning author will speak about freedom tonight at Wilmington University.  

Daniel Biddle will discuss his book “Tasting Freedom: Octavius Catto and the Battle for Equality in Civil War America,” which he wrote along with Murray Dubin.  Biddle will also sign copies of his book from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Pratt Student Center on the New Castle campus.  The book is a biography of Catto, who’s been called “Philadelphia’s best kept secret” and focuses on the history of the fight for civil rights in Philadelphia.
