Call Me Kate is now on sale at the Number 9 Mine Museum gift shop in Lansford. Dave Kuchta, manager and fellow writer, was enthusiastic about the book's sales potential. In a phone conversation, Dave told me that people are always asking for books about "the Mollies." The mine attraction is close to both Alec's Campbell's house and the site of the "Molly Maguire" murder of John P. Jones. Shop hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 12 -4 P.M.
My husband and I took the mine tour a few years ago. The ticket price of is well worth the experience. It's hard to imagine being a miner and having to face that damp darkness every day. God bless those who went before us, paying the high price to make our lives better!
