Warren County Public Library will host best-selling novelist Jeff Shaara on Thursday, November 15 at 6pm. Shaara’s first novel, Gods and Generals, leapt onto the New York Times Bestseller List. In the years to follow, many of Jeff’s books would appear on that same list. He has written novels about the Civil War, the Mexican-American War of the 1840s, World War I and World War II. His only nonfiction work titled Jeff Shaara’s Civil War Battlefields, is a unique tour across ten of this country’s most valuable pieces of hallowed ground. All royalties from this book are donated to battlefield preservation. Shaara’s new trilogy returns to the Civil War and starts with A Blaze of Glory. The book covers the Battle of Shiloh, and will coincide with the 150th Anniversary year of that momentous event. Shaara will discuss A Blaze of Glory at the library event. Books will be available for purchase. This event is free and open to the public.
