On Friday, May 17 at 7 pm join us for a reading, discussion and signing with Gerald Stulc, author of "The Surgion's Mate," a sweeping historical fiction novel of adventure, romance, intrigue and medicine set against the brutalities of the Napoleonic War.
Jean-Baptiste Swift begins his journey as a young surgeon's assistant in the naval battle of Trafalgar. His exploits lead him to Europe and Napoleon's land wars, where he learns the meanings of courage, true love, duty and honor.
"The author’s command of the historical period is extraordinary, including medical and military matters, not surprising since he served as a surgeon in the U.S. Navy. Stulc keeps the action-packed plot moving at a speedy pace." - Kirkus
