Story Time AND Author Visit

Today (6/4) at 3:00 ... STORY TIME! The theme: The Beach! Come join us for some ocean-themed stories and, of course, a fun craft. Bodhi's here today and anxious for some kid love!

SUNDAY, 6/8, at 4:00 ... come in for a reading and signing by Portland-based author TREVOR SCOTT. A former Air Force officer and the author of more than a dozen books, Scott will stop in at Camalli for a reading and discussion centered on his books’ themes of espionage and intrigue. Scott’s most recent book, BURST OF SOUND, was called “highly entertaining” by the Midwest Book Review and “very exciting” by WP Book Reviews. Scott joined the Navy just shy of 18, working on the dangerous flight deck of aircraft carriers as an aviation ordnanceman on cruises to the Mediterranean, the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. Letting an 18-year-old loose on the streets of the world was an excellent training ground for his future career as an international thriller writer. Done with the Navy after four years, Scott attended the University of Minnesota, earning a degree in English and journalism. He soon rejoined the military as an Air Force officer. He was stationed first in Missouri in a communications squadron supporting Minuteman II ICBMs. Then he moved on to a Ground-Launched Cruise Missile unit in Germany for three years during the crumbling of the Berlin Wall and the fall of communism, where he participated in joint exercises with the German Army and Air Force, and escorted Soviet inspection teams in compliance with the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty.

SO ... Scott's visit will be of interest to all kinds of folks. And if you're a budding writer yourself, come on in and ask questions! It's the best way to learn about publishing process.
