Wicked Philadelphia on the radio

Ed Pettit in Lippard

Tom Keels will be the guest on WHYY's Radio Times tomorrow morning (Thu July 1) at 11AM.  Keels' new book, Wicked Philadelphia: Sin in the City of Brotherly Love was just released a couple months ago and features a chapter on Singleton Mercer's murder of Mahlon Heberton, the case which inspired George Lippard to write The Quaker City

In January, Keels did a piece for WRTI radio about that murder and Lippard's novel, in which I was happy to participate.  You can listen to that show here (the Lippard part begins at the 14:30 mark).

And check out Radio Times tomorrow morning.
