news and events

Book Tour for the paperback release of On Desperate Ground:

Wednesday, September 26 – Santa Fe
Book Launch at Violet Crown Theater, in association with Collected Works Bookstore
 

The event, starting at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday September 26, will be held at the Violet Crown Cinema in association with Collected Works Bookstore. I’ll be giving a talk and a slideshow, followed by a Q&A. Several veterans of the battle—the “Chosin Few”—will be present.

A reception and signing, featuring beer, wine, and hors d’oeuvres, will follow my talk, in the Violet Crown event room.

To purchase a ticket (they’re going fast!), visit Violet Crown Cinema.

For more information, visit Collected Works.

Also, an early review of the book appeared in the Santa Fe New Mexican’s Pasatiempo.

Come celebrate with me . . . and help your local independent bookstore!

Hope to see you there!
