Cover of Hero Unaware by Doug Dodd

In honor of Veterans Day, local author Doug Dodd will give a talk about his latest book, Hero Unaware: Letters Home from a Navy Corpsman During WWII. The book presents a collection of letters from his father, who served in the Pacific from 1942 to 1945. This is the story of how a farm boy from Montana ended up at Saipan and Iwo Jima, and the effect his wartime service had on the rest of his life.

The book is available at the Homer Public Library. Check it out today!

Cold Mountain Path by Tom Kizzia and The Hunger of Crows by Richard Chiappone

Tom Kizzia (author of Cold Mountain Path) and Richard Chiappone (author of The Hunger of Crows) will be at the Homer Public Library to talk about their latest releases.

Cold Mountain Path traces the history of McCarthy, Alaska, in the decades after the mine was abandoned. McCarthy didn't disappear, it just reinvented itself--over and over again.

The Hunger of Crows tells the story of Carla Merino, who is on the run after taking a photograph that some dangerous people want to keep secret. In a remote Alaskan town, her path crosses with two men who have secrets of their own.

This event is planned to be in-person in the fireplace lounge at the Homer Public Library. Due to COVID precautions, seating is limited to 25 people and reservations are required. Please register here Tom Kizzia and Richard Chiappone Author Talk

You may also watch the event online through this Zoom link. No reservation is needed for the online broadcast.
