Join Mary Howell at her home at 150 Gilchrist Ave. for a light supper and conversation with Robert Macomber, an award-winning and internationally-acclaimed author, lecturer, and TV commentator. He is a featured lecturer during the Civil War Reflections Symposium.
Bob’s Honor Series of naval novels covers the life and career of an American naval officer, Peter Wake, from his duty on the Florida coast during the Civil War, through his subsequent naval espionage missions around the world, until his retirement in 1908.
Macomber’s novels illuminate the U.S. Navy’s critical role in the expansion of America from a continental country into a global power. His recently-released ninth novel, “Honor Bound,” represents the one-millionth printed word in the Honor Series, which has readers across North America and Europe.
There are 22 novels planned for the Honor Series.
Bob is the recipient of the 2001 Florida Genealogical Society’s Outstanding Achievement Award for his non-fiction magazine and newspaper work on Florida’s maritime history, and was selected as Florida Monthly Magazine’s “Most Intriguing Author of 2006.” He was also named Grand Marshal of Florida’s 2013 Edison Pageant of Lights Parade.
There will be room for only 40 people to participate in this presentation, so make your reservations quickly. This offer is available to everyone – you do not need to have tickets to Civil War Reflections to participate.
