Speaking of Books…

Bob Lackey is no stranger to Havre de Grace, having lived here for 23 years. He shares in his bio:

Robert Lackey is a native of Havre de Grace, Maryland, by way of Leonardtown, Maryland, and Mt. Airy, North Carolina, plus thirty-five other brief addresses in the U.S. and Europe. Robert has been a writer, soldier, photographer, and administrator, but always comes back to his writing.

He briefly explains on his website that he shares Havre de Grace’s history through the characters of Ben and Sonja Pulaski.

Maryland is a slave state, bordering the free state of Pennsylvania. The line between them is the Mason-Dixon line. Both Ben and Sonja grew up around that “peculiar institution” of slavery.  The Pulaski Saga follows them, as they awaken to the moral issues of slavery and are drawn into individual acts that become a commitment to helping runaway slaves escape to the north.
