A. Louise Staman
A. Louise Staman

Author A. Louise Staman will join members of the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill to discuss her biography at 12:30 p.m. Thursday at the Richmond Hill City Center in J.F. Gregory Park.

Staman’s book, “Restoring Lost Times: Savannah’s Anna Colquitt Hunter,” is the true story of Hunter as she embraced the triumphs and tribulations of her long life with gusto, working and playing hard, feeling deeply and participating fully.

The illustrated book is a compelling tale of all the phases of Hunter’s life as she became a wife, mother, and widow and served abroad during World War II before making her contributions in preserving Savannah’s historic homes and landmarks.

“The opportunity to share a bit of Savannah’s history with others in the area is always a joy,” said Staman. “Anna Hunter is very dear to my heart and is a story that needs to be told. I look forward to sharing an incredible woman’s life with the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill.”

Staman lives in Savannah with her husband of more than 50 years, Dr. E. Michael Staman. Her most recent book, “Restoring Lost Times: Savannah’s Anna Colquitt Hunter,” is her sixth published book (one published in Paris) and her third biography.

She has written for French and English journals and has won several prizes for her writing.

Hard-cover copies of “Restoring Lost Times: Savannah’s Anna Colquitt Hunter” are currently available for purchase for $29.95 and soft-cover copies for $24.95 online at Staman’s website or at the Davenport House Museum gift shop.
