Walter T. A. Hansen Memorial Library located at 10 Hansen St., Mars  
Hill, ME, will be hosting an author talk and book signing event on  
Friday, April 12, 2013 @ 6:30 p.m. featuring local author Susan  
Dahlgren Daigneault and her book, "In the Shadow of a Mountain:  a  
Soldier's Struggle With PTSD".

Her book tells the life story of her father, one of Maine's  
Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, Edward C. Dahlgren, detailing  
his struggles with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, a condition  
affecting many of our military veterans returning from war zones  
today.  With passion and unflinching honesty, Susan honors her father,  
the war hero, her father, the anguished soldier, her father, the man.   
"This book is a must read for all Americans who appreciate freedom and  
love our great country." Col. Wesley L. Fox, Medal of Honor recipient.

Susan Dahlgren Daigneault, EdD, is a retired high school guidance  
counselor and an instructor at the University of New Hampshire in the  
Counselor Education Department.  She has had several stories published  
by Echoes, the Northern Maine journal of rural culture.  Her work has  
also appeared in The Bangor Daily News, The Maine Sunday Telegram,  
Goose River Anthology, and Reflections, a University of Southern Maine  
literary journal as well as several articles in professional journals  
in her field.  This memoir about her father is her first book.  Susan  
lives in southern Maine with her husband, son, and her cats.

Susan will have copies of her book available to purchase that evening.  
  It can also be purchased at Amazon.
