Our 1860s House

Joan Itaska lives with her historian husband and a coon cat named Cleo in a house stacked to the ceiling with books.  A published author of scholarly works in the fields of ethnography, education, anti-racism, and the arts, she became fascinated by the Civil War while renovating her 1860s farmhouse. She is in the process of revising her second novel which focuses on abolition and the women’s movement during the Civil War era.
