Swagger Sword by David Brody

The Swagger Sword - Author talk with David Brody

Thursday, October 18

Was Columbus using ancient Knights Templar sailing charts when crossing the Atlantic? If so, what his true mission? Top Vatican officials, it turns out, have been wondering the same thing: An archbishop implicated in the assassination of Pope John Paul I spent years searching the Catskill Mountains for Templar treasures relating to these charts, apparently relying on a coded treasure map carved on the blade of a mysterious swagger stick sword. Author David Brody will talk about his latest novel and the historical research that inspired it. Copies of the book will be available for sale. David S. Brody is a Boston Globe bestselling fiction writer and author of 11 novels. A graduate of Tufts University and Georgetown Law School, he has appeared as a guest expert on documentaries airing on History Channel, Travel Channel, PBS and Discovery Channel. He resides in Westford, MA with his wife, sculptor Kimberly Scott, and two daughters.
