CHARLES ROSENBERG DEBUTS GEORGE WASHINGTON ALTERNATIVE HISTORY

TUESDAY, JULY 10; 7 PM

CHARLES ROSENBERG will discuss his book, The Trial and Execution of the Traitor George Washington: A Novel. If you like alternative history, you’ll enjoy this book. The title tells us the book is speculative fiction – and what a tale it is!
There have always been theories that the British plotted to kidnap George Washington during the height of the Revolutionary War, imprison him in London, try him for treason and use his release as a bargaining tool. In this novel, they were successful in kidnapping him, but Washington would have none of their plan to use him as a bargaining tool. He said he would rather die a martyr to the cause than give them a means to end the Revolutionary War.
Rosenberg explores the “importance of force of personality in leadership and victory.” The book combines “spy thriller elements, political skullduggery, and courtroom drama.” HANOVER SQUARE PRESS

Charles Rosenberg is the author of four legal thrillers, including Death on High Floor. He graduated from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio and practices law in Los Angeles.
