Jim Jordan

S2 E5 – Jim Jordan – Discovering The Slave Trader’s Letter Book – Award-winning author and historian, Jim Jordan, transports us back to 1858 in Savannah, Georgia to share the true story of the criminal life of slave trader, Charles Lamar in his award-winning book, The Slave Trader’s Letter Book: Charles Lamar, the Wanderer, and Other Tales of the African Slave Trade. Jim pieces together this important part of history with a treasure trove of newly discovered documents. In this episode he talks with Lynda about the serendipity of finding the lost letters and how he created his non-fiction narrative detailing a slave trader’s life. Jim also shares why being lousy at golf led to the writing life.
