NPR’s Charlie Schroeder Sells Book about Re-Enactors

charlie_schroeder23.jpgAs real wars boil around the world, NPR producer and contributor Charlie Schroeder will write about the people obsessed with old wars–re-enacting 15 different historical wars alongside hobbyists in a new book.

Schroeder just sold “Re-Enactor: Learning About History One Bloodless Battle at a Time,” to Meghan Stevenson at Hudson Street Press/Plume. The deal was negotiated by Jonathan Lyons at Lyons Literary. Schroeder has produced countless shows for NPR, including pieces about getting into shape and not washing his hair.
