Harbor of Spies: A Novel of Historic Havana; Talk and Book Signing
April 25, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Harbor of Spies: A Novel of Historic Havana is an historical suspense novel set in Cuba at the height of the Civil War. Havana was then alive with blockade runners, spies and slave traders. Robin Lloyd’s illustrated talk with period paintings, lithographs and photographs will reveal the history and inspiration behind his new seafaring novel and show period images of old Havana, its harbor, the ships that formed the Naval blockade in the Gulf of Mexico and those that dared to try to pass through it.
The talk will tell the story of Cuba’s role in the American Civil War and reveal why Havana was one of the most important foreign ports supplying the Confederacy.
A book signing will follow the talk.
