No Snow Down Here

powers.JPGIs it just me or does the possibility of a winter storm make us scurry now more than it used to? I can’t count the number of conversations I’ve had with people who are nervous about the snow that’s supposed to hit this weekend. My guess: We’ll all survive! Hey, get a few extra snacks, pick up a great read at the old neighborhood bookstore, and sit back and relax. But don’t forget one other thing: There’s a special event happening on Saturday morning and I don’t think you’ll want to miss the chance to speak with Jonathan Powers.

Powers served his country in war, and now this U.S. soldier is on another kind of mission. Founder of War Kids Relief, an effort to help the thousands of Iraqi orphans created by the war, Powers will appear at River City Books at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24, to talk about his efforts and sign copies of What Was Asked of Us: An Oral History of the Iraq War by the Soldiers Who Fought It.

Powers is one of the soldiers featured in the book, which is a gritty, authentic and uncensored history of the war written by Trish Wood. River City is discounting the book 15 percent through the event. And if you can’t make it but want a signed copy anyway, give them a call (507-646-7754).

My forecast calls for 100 percent chance of enjoying this event.
