Military Book Fair to Take Place on USS Midway!

Oct 07, 2014 10:52PM ● Published by Paul Spear

Because all proceeds go to veteran organizations people who want a book signed will have to buy books at the Midway/Fair bookstore. The book signing is free with the purchase of a Midway ticket. People can meet best-selling authors, purchase a book for signature, and take a tour of the Midway, a ship steeped in history. Readers can also have the opportunity to obtain a collector’s item, a personal written note from an author answering a question they always wanted to ask.

The organizers hope that people will not be fooled by the title since there will be over forty authors, all from various genres from women’s issues to science fiction.  Panel discussions with many of the authors will include: Veteran Characters”; “Female Heroines”; “Hot and Cold Wars”; “Terrorists and Politics” and “Guns and Needles.” In addition there will be a Q/A with Hank Steinberg, the executive producer of the television shows “The Last Ship” and “Without A Trace.”  Others in attendance include Catherine Coulter, Charles and Caroline Todd, James Rollins, Ted Bell, C. J. Lyons, T. Jefferson Parker, Jan Burke, D. P. Lyle, Iris and Roy Johansen, Amy Hatvany, Andrew Kaplan, and Dale Brown.

Note: This does not directly deal with Imperial Beach News. However, because of the large amount of Veterans and Military Personnel and their families that live in Imperial Beach. I decided the least we could do is show are respect and gratitude for their service and report on this story! That will continue to be our policy for the reasons stated above!
