Augustinovic launches second Bermuda trivia book
Writer Horst Augustinovic is to launch a second volume of his popular book on little-known facts about Bermuda.
Mr Augustinovic, who released ‘What You May Not Know About Bermuda' last year, a collection of his writings for The Royal Gazette's sister publication, This Week in Bermuda, said: “I wrote the first over a five-year period in This Week in Bermuda.
“The book was really successful, especially around Christmas. That led me to a second volume of things I found quirky or interesting and gets my attention.”
Volume Two of the series includes a potted history of Bermuda privateering — piracy with a legal gloss and how Bermuda almost went to war with the Bahamas.
Other tales include a new language invented in Bermuda, and stories of ships and planes linked to the island — some of which met tragic ends.
The book will be launched at a signing at Bookmart in Brown & Co, Front Street, Hamilton, on Saturday, October 19 between 1-4pm.
