Carl Nelson '56 - His new book about Annapolis

Carl Nelson from the class of 56 is our speaker. He has written several novels, his latest novel, Annapolis, The Making of an Officer, takes place in the 1970's and covers all the dilemmas of being a plebe to Firstie during those trying times. He will also let us know how everyone should write and how easy the publication process really is!! Come and listen, we all have a GREAT Sea Story just a few pages short of a novel in all of us!!


Annapolis. This is the fourth book in Carl’s Blake Lawrence series. Graduates of the Naval Academy might recognize this story -- it could span any period of the twentieth century with a little spilled over on each side. In this case Blake enters the Naval Academy during the middle of the 20th century and faces the barriers and challenges placed in front of young men (and more recent, women) who aspire to a naval career: academic as well as hazing. It takes him into heroic situations both at sea and ashore in foreign places. Lawrence is based on situations that actually happened at Annapolis. The stories, of course, been embellished to protect the innocent as well as the author and his friends; the names, characters, places and incidents are used fictitiously. The characters are composites and any resemblance to real people living or dead is entirely coincidental.
