Meet Historian and Author Jim Jordan

Jim Jordan won the 2018 Georgia Historical Records Advisory Council Excellence Award for his book The Slave-Trader’s Letter-Book:  Charles Lamar, the Wanderer, and Other Tales of the African Slave Trade.  These 70 long-lost letters detail the illegal landing of 400 African slaves on American soil by Charles Lamar who used the yacht the Wanderer as a slave ship dropping off slaves on Jekyll Island.

Gwinnett County Public Library, in partnership with Liberty Books, presents this author event with Jim Jordan on Saturday, February 16 at 3:00 pm at Liberty Books, 176 W Crogan Street, Lawrenceville, GA 30046.  This event is free and open to the public.
