Book reading in Hudson, Iowa

Stationary Header 2

I wanted to thank everyone involved in putting on the book reading last week at the Hudson Public Library in Hudson, Iowa. I also wanted to thank all that were in attendance. I was honored by the support and moved as more and more chairs had to be brought in.  The 7:00 PM reading went well, with a question and answer session and book signing afterwards. There was a nice reception following with refreshments interrupted only by the tornado sirens. After all it is Iowa and it is that time of year. Again, thank you for supporting my book, Christmas Trees Lit The Sky and allowing me to tell my story of growing up in Germany during World War II.
