Author Talk with Robert Grede author of The Spur and the Sash
Main Library
Monday, Sep. 22, 6:00 pm
Author Talk with Rob
We’re hosting a long distance book talk with Robert Grede, author of The Spur and the Sash.   Mr. Grede has written three business books; he runs a business consulting firm and has served as president to two colleges.  He had often wondered about the faded sash and tarnished spur his father had held on to for years.  He found out from family history that it was his great grand-father’s, who was a Sergeant in the Union Army during the Civil War.  Sgt. George Van Norman was wounded in the Battle of Nashville, and was assigned to protect the Elm Hill plantation.  He stayed in middle Tennessee after the war was over, but did make it back to his home state of Wisconsin.  Mr. Grede was so interested that he wrote this historic fiction novel based on the life of his great grandfather.
 
Robert Grede had been a carpenter, musician, teacher, author, speaker, entrepreneur, consultant and dad.  For fun he writes string quartets.  He lives in Milwaukee.  The Spur and the Sash is his first novel.
