Jeff Shaara, the author of A Blaze of Glory: A Novel of the Battle of Shiloh, will be at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee (USFSM) on Tuesday, May 29th at 6pm to discuss his book. The event will be hosted in the Selby Auditorium on campus at 8350 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
In A Blaze of Glory: A Novel of the Battle of Shiloh, the first of a new trilogy, Jeff Shaara returns to the Civil War terrain he knows best. With stunning immediacy, Shaara transports the reader inside the maelstrom of Shiloh as no novelist has before. Drawing on meticulous research, he dramatizes key actions and decisions, and the thoughts and voices of brave participants in a battle that many believe turned the tide of the war itself.
Following the Conversation guests will be invited for coffee and discussion. Jeff Shaara will sign only books provided by and purchased through Series Partner, Bookstore1Sarasota.
Shaara is the author of 14 previous novels on the topic of war including The Final Storm, No Less Than Victory, and The Rising Tide. Note that May 29th, the day of our Conversation with Jeff Shaara, is the publication date of A Blaze of Glory: A Novel of the Battle of Shiloh.
