My review of a book worth reading: FOUNDING MARTYR: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF DR. JOSEPH WARREN, THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION’S LOST HERO, by Christian Di Spigna, Biography, 299 pages, ISBN: 978-0-553-41932-0
Exceptional, Interesting and an Easy Read
Many a man helped ignite the American Revolution. Sam and John Adams, John Hancock, John Lamb, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin… all were among the major players, but based on my own research, Doctor Joseph Warren was the prime mover providing the inspiration bringing the war to fruition. I obtained a copy of FOUNDING MARTYR to further my research for the writing of the second of a multi saga set of historical novels of the events leading to the founding of the United States. Research already completed identified the importance of Dr. Warren, but I was in need of additional information. Writing historical novels requires giving voice to the players in as accurate a fashion as possible. Many of the patriots’ character and voice can be determined from thousands of pages of documents (letters, diaries, broadsides) these men wrote. For Doctor Warren I have found few, and this book by Christian Di Spigna has provided me the insight I desired. As a plus the book is well written and a very enjoyable read.
I just completed a week of enjoyable interaction with readers at two separate events in McCormick, South Carolina.
On Thursday evening about two dozen attended an Authors Night including a Book Signing at the McCormick County Library. My talk focused on the research for my recently released historical novel, Genesis of Martyrs: Don’t Tread on Me ~ Saga 1. I believe those who attended enjoyed the evening…. the interaction during and after my talk was lively. I know I enjoyed the evening.
On Saturday, even with Hurricane Florence threatening, downtown McCormick held its annual Gold Rush Festival. Many who evacuated the coast and traveled inland took refuge in our community and attended the festival. They watched the parade, visited the attractions… including a table at which I discussed and sold books. I enjoyed meeting many interesting people including the brother-in-law of a friend I haven’t seen for about thirty years…. when I lived in Ohio.
One of the many historical facts revealed in Genesis of Martyrs: Don’t Tread on Me ~ Saga 1.
