From the author:

The wars between Rome and Carthage have fascinated people through history, including such diverse figures as Sigmund Freud, Gustave Flaubert, and President Dwight Eisenhower. The story has enthralled me since I was a young teenager and first read about Hannibal taking all those elephants over the Alps. And that’s just part of a story—it gets even more interesting!

In this presentation I will talk about what happened, how it shaped the world today, and why I wrote The Wolf Boy, historical fiction that looks at the relationship between the famous general Hannibal and the orphaned boy who becomes his servant, then his scribe.

This is a story that can engage young people—bringing history to life, helping them think about what really matters in their studies. I invite middle, upper, and college teachers, history buffs, and people who just like a good story to join me on August 21 at 4- 5 pm EST.

I always welcome impromptu questions at my talks, and you are also welcome to send questions in advance to my email here.
