Book Discussion & Signing

* Tomorrow (Thursday) at 6:30 p.m. Gunther Skaletz, author of "Life on Both Sides of the Wall" will be at the Stumpjack to discuss his book. This event is free and open to the public.
From the Herald Times Reporter:

The autobiography tells of Skaletz's life as a teenage boy who refused to give up, first to the Gestapo and later to the KGB. He survived World War II as a prisoner of war, was arrested by the KGB, and found himself in a Russian labor camp where he fought for his real survival. Skaletz hopes to remind, inform and inspire readers of his book that, even today, people around the world struggle to survive in the aftermath of war, destruction and chaos, according to a news release.

* This Saturday at 11:00 a.m. we will also have a Children's Reading at the Stumpjack. Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are" will be the featured book. Bring your children and enjoy a cup of coffee while they listen to the story.

If you haven't read Gunther's book yet, I believe you are missing out. I had a hard time putting this one down. I am an avid reader and I have read many inspiring books, this one was in a category all by itself...
If you think you’re having a bad day, read this book and think again.
If you look up the word "SURVIVOR" in my dictionary you will see a picture of Gunther Skaletz.
I was unable to catch Gunther's discussion this time around, but I hope to see him soon.
