Yesterday afternoon we had author and Vietnam veteran, Jack Flowers, at the library. He has written a novel, Rat Six, based on his experiences as a tunnel rat during the war.

Jack gave a good synopsis of the book, talked about his life, and opened the discussion up from there. Everyone had questions or comments and much of the audience were veterans, including another tunnel rat. He was wonderful with our audience, listened attentively, told good stories, and still moved everyone along in the discussion.

Please visit his website and you can contact him via the website. He is EXTREMELY reasonable and I'm looking forward to his next book, Flowers: a love story (an epistolary novel told with floral receipts).

We had a small crowd, although again, I call it a success due to the fact that several folks had not been to our library in YEARS and another gentleman had never been there and he lives nearby.

Have a good weekend, all!
