Broad Street Books speaker series

Broad Street Books has some visiting writers lined up to speak this week.

Writer Robert Anthony Sizemore will be at Broad Street Books on Wednesday night talk talk about and sign copies of his book For Douglas: A Final Word on the Korean War:

For Douglas: A Final Word on the Korean War by Robert Anthony Sizemore is a book about war. Ostensibly it’s about the Korean War. It is also a multi-layered work that delves deeper into some of the more psychological and spiritual occurrences of war. A question raised by the author is: Did the Korean War ever really end in terms of the existing conflicts between America and China and are there existing P.O.W.s from the Korean War, who would serve as a sounding board for China’s real intentions during the past fifty years? Robert Anthony Sizemore attempts to answer this question, as well as to provide an exploration of the full tapestry of war including the other major conflicts of the twentieth century, through the life of psychologist/professor Tony Daldo and his wife Julia.

Date: Wednesday, October 21
Time: 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

On Thursday, Merrick Alpert will speak and sign copies of his new book “Morning Sun”:

Morning Sun is the true story of Merrick Alpert’s journey across America to track down the father who abandoned him and his siblings 30 years earlier. This poignant and often-funny memoir chronicles Alpert’s rise from near poverty in rural Connecticut and his successful pursuit of the American dream. A colorful firsthand account, Morning Sun is the story of not just one man but of all who have made peace with their upbringings in single-parent homes.
