Francis Hamit will speak to the Civil Warriors Civil War Round Table of the West San Fernando Valley on Wednesday, February 8.
His topic will be “Behind The Queen of Washington,” Hamit’s second novel drawn from the work of the Confederate Secret Service and the women who were its most effective agents. Rose Greenhow is the protagonist of the new novel, while its predecessor, The Shenandoah Spy, was based on the adventures of Belle Boyd. Hamit spoke to the Civil Warriors in September 2008 about Belle’s story.
The Round Table meets at Weiler’s Deli and Restaurant in Canoga Park. Hamit will speak at 7 p.m., preceded by an optional dinner and drinks. See the website for cost and RSVP.
