Presentation Description

Pamela Bauer Mueller walks you through the steps of writing the historical novel, with a twist. Children eagerly absorb Georgia’s history through the novel form, bringing to life real people such as antebellum slave Neptune Small, and Mary Musgrove, Georgia’s Creek Princess who ensured the survival of General Oglethorpe’s colonial settlers. Her newest novel describes the 54 years of the Millionaires’ Jekyll Island Club history through the voices of four of their employees.
