About the event

You and your friends are invited to meet historian and author Oliver Greeves to 'wet the head' and launch his new novel Nelson’s Lost Son at Sydney’s oldest continually licensed hotel, full of memories of a major protagonist in the novel. 

Please RSVP before March 16. Your free ticket includes a token for a complimentary glass of Nelsons Blood or other craft beer as well as the chance to enjoy Oliver's insights into the secret story behind this ancestor Josiah Nisbet - Fanny Nelson's son and British Naval hero Lord Horatio Nelson's step-son.

In Nelson's Lost Son, Oliver creates an adventure-packed story of skulduggery and military daring which also manages to explore the timeless issue of what can happen when we do not let our 'station', skin colour or even our parents - famous or not - define who we are.

Join in the celebrations anytime from 4.30pm in the upstairs bar. The launch is at 5.30pm including a chance to ask your questions about this fascinating era of naval and European history. The book signing and get together ends at 7pm.  

Please make a booking directly with the Hotel if you wish to stay on at this character-filled pub for a casual dinner afterwards.
