The yellow fever epidemic of 1853

New Events Coming Soon

Nunez Community College

A special thanks to the brilliant, and well spoken, Ron Chapman, for inviting me to the Nunez History event. Ron spoke about the history of Yellow Fever and he did an excellent speech.  He (Ron) taught me more about this devastating disease than I thought possible. I even got a chance to catch up with the brilliant, Mr. Tommy Warner. 

After his well received speech he asked me to say a few words about my novel, Yellow Jack, and to share with the audience my fifteen year journey developing my story of political corruption, following the Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1853, in New Orleans.
