New York Times Best Selling Author Begins Book Tour in TC

A New York Times best selling author started his book tour in Traverse City today.

Author Jeff Shaara came all the way from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to be a part of the National Writers Series.

It’s the first stop on his nation-wide book tour for the novel “Fateful Lightning.”

The book is the fourth in a series about life and travels in the Civil War.

His big takeaway,

“This is not just a dry history book, I am not an academic historian, I’m a story teller and what I try to do is to take get you into the heads of some of the most important characters in our history and tell you their story the way they would tell it.”

Shaara’s Fateful Lightning went on sale today.

You can find it in stores and online.
