Buffalo, Books & Beer - Tim Wendel

Join us at The Place as Buffalo, Books & Beer presents Tim Wendel, author of the Civil War-Era novel, Rebel Falls

Award-winning author and Niagara County native Wendel will discuss his new book Rebel Falls, a historical novel with relevance for our polarized era. Wendel takes readers to the summer of 1864, as the fate of the nation “conceived in Liberty” hangs in the balance, a time when Confederate agents gather in Niagara Falls to plan one last audacious maneuver to turn the tide of the conflict. He introduces us to Rory Chase, a capable yet haunted young woman eager to contribute to the Union cause, who finds her mission involves infiltrating a Rebel spy network in the shadow of the Falls. Rory’s quest to foil the Confederate plot makes for a riveting page-turner.

Wendel is a Writer-in-Residence at Johns Hopkins University and the author of Summer of ’68, Cancer Crossings, High Heat, and the historical novels, Castro’s Curveball and its sequel Escape from Castro’s Cuba. He has appeared on PBS, CNN, ESPN, and NPR, and is the narrator of several audiobooks. He lives in Charlottesville, Virginia.
