On the occasion of the annual meeting of the American Friends of Lafayette being held June 6-9 in Savannah, Georgia, Histria Books is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of Lafayette: Courtier to Crown Fugitive, 1757-1777 by bestselling author S.P. Grogan. The book, scheduled for release on November 15, 2019, will be the first title published under Histria Books recently acquired Addison & Highsmith imprint which focuses on high quality works of fiction.
More so than history, Lafayette: Courtier to Crown Fugitive, 1757 to 1777 delves into the mystery of how the character of Marquis de La Fayette rose to the occasion in his desire to fight for the underdog rebels in far-away America. This is a fictional account of the coming-of-age of one of France’s most wealthy young bachelors. Author SP Grogan places the youth of Gilbert into the context of the world around him in late 1700s France and the scandalous court of Queen Marie Antoinette and her clique of which the young noble was an active participant.
Lafayette, Courtier to Crown Fugitive will open your eyes to everything that impacts young La Fayette’s understanding of the world, and what fed his desire to seek glory and honors. The book is available for preorder at HistriaBooks.com and at major book retailers.
