Friends of the Library Meet the Author: Charles Oldham
Thursday, September 29th, 2:00 pm. Harper Library, 109 W. Moore St. Southport
Oldham, a native of Sanford, NC, is a criminal defense attorney and an award-winning author of two historical true-crime mysteries. “The Senator’s Son” recounts the 1905 disappearance of State Senator Samuel Beasley’s 8-year-old boy and the kidnapping trial of a political rival. “Ship of Blood” describes a 1905 mutiny and mass murder aboard the schooner Harry A. Berwind, and the subsequent murder trials in Wilmington that drew national headlines. Attorney Oldham will discuss the research of his books and how they relate to NC history and politics of the early 1900s.
