Sam Lightner Jr will speak about and sign his new book, "Heavy Green", on Wednesday, September 20th at 7:30pm. About the Book: By 1967 the Pentagon could see that stopping the flow of weapons into South Vietnam was the only way the United States could win the war. Key to this effort was the aerial bombing of the Ho Chi Minh Trail, but the weather and air defenses of North Vietnam made that task nearly impossible. Well researched and based on information that remained classified for 20 years, "Heavy Green" is the tale of men who volunteered for a covert mission in a secret war, and the daring raid that intended to bring it down. Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased now at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
