Local library hosts book discussion for author of Last of the Great Swashbucklers
On April 14, Stephen Darley, author of The Last of the Great Swashbucklers: A Bio-Bibliography of Rafael Sabatini took part in a book discussion and signing at the North Haven Library.
Held in the library’s community room, family and friends attended the event as Darley discussed his book and its creation. He explained that the book was also authored by the late Jesse F. Knight—an avid fan of Sabatini. In addition, the library held an exhibition of The Last of the Great Swashbucklers and publications from Rafael Sabatini about a month earlier.
In 2009, Darley retired from his real estate development and construction business and began devoting time to his passions of reading and writing. He explained, “Lots of research and many hours are put into the writing of my books and magazine articles. I have written articles published in several magazines on a variety of authors as well historical figures and events in the Revolutionary War era. It’s been a positive experience and a learning experience.”
