This way to the egress! No humbug! There's a sucker born every minute. This #tinyTuesday post features the 1889 autobiography of an American with a large personality, Phineas T. Barnum. Published in Danbury, Connecticut, the little volume (just 16 pages) includes an abbreviated version of Barnum's life story. This weekend the Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus farewell tour went through Worcester. That made us think back on the showman Barnum who spent decades and made and lost his fortune entertaining Americans with dazzling performances, sideshow presentations, hoaxes and hucksterism.  #aas_minibook #minibook #ptbarnum
