Sea Stories: A Carriage House Conversation with Gary Slaughter @ The Carriage House at Belle Meade Plantation
Oct 26 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Sea Stories by Gary Slaughter

Sea Stories

Join us for a Carriage House Conversation with author Gary Slaughter.  Mr. Slaughter is known for his work as a corporate information technology specialist, but in 2002 the Owosso Michigan transplant started a new journey as a writer and released his award-winning Cottonwood book series. However, before he began life as a writer and information expert, Slaughter served as a United States Naval Officer aboard anti-submarine warfare destroyers during the Cold War.  In 2016 he shared his experiences with the world in a non-fiction work titled Sea Stories:  A Memoir of a Naval Officer (1956-1967). This work offers a series of fascinating and occasionally humorous vignettes that provide a window into naval life, personalities and operations during the Cuban Missile Crisis and other events of the Cold War years.  Mr. Slaughter’s presentation will include a brief lecture and a question and answer session following his presentation.

About Carriage House Conversations

At Belle Meade Plantation we believe that everyday stories are the threads that make the fabric of history.  Our Carriage House Conversations are a collection  lectures that take place inside our historic Carriage House and offer stories and conversations with local authors, community leaders and historians.
