Joesph E. Persico Signs "Roosevelt's Centurions"

         Last night The Book House was packed full of Joseph E. Persico fans who were eager to listen to this well known historian and biographer talk about his newest book, Roosevelt's Centurions: FDR and the Commanders He Led to Victory in World War 2.  After receiving many pre-orders throughout the day, it was no surprise that we sold out of Mr. Persico's latest book.

But have no fear! More copies of Roosevelt's Centurions are on the way.
 (Please call us if you would like a copy put aside for you. (518)489-4761)

       For those of you who aren't familiar with Mr. Persico's work, he's mainly known for his books revolving around the life and times of Franklin Roosevelt. After graduating from college Mr. Persico worked at NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) in Naples, Italy. He also served as a Lieutenant Junior Grade aboard a minesweeper. Just a few of his books that we currently have in stock include:
        A big thanks to all those who came out last night, it was a great turn out and we loved listening to Mr. Persico talk about his work!

Reminder: Today, June 8th, at 3:00pm Lynn-Miller Lachmann will be signing copies of her Young Adult novel, Rogue. Her book will be available at the front counter.
