Acworth Bookstore will hold a book signing SATURDAY June 16th from 1 to 5 PM. Pete Mecca will be available to discuss and sign “VETERANS: STORIES FROM AMERICA’S BEST”.
Per one review, “VETERANS: STORIES FROM AMERICA’S BEST captures the voices of the men and women sent to war in far-off lands during America’s wars of the last century. Many kept their experiences, whether brutal, humane, or comedic, under tight wraps. Pete Mecca has sought out these veterans and, in giving them an opportunity to tell their stories, shows their wartime experiences to be powerful and poignant. Their voices speak loud and clear as they tell their stories in this stark and moving book.”
Acworth Bookstore will hold a book signing SATURDAY June 9th from 1 to 5 PM. Rebecca Vaughn of Fideli Publishing will be available to discuss the new edition of “20 YEARS IN THE SECRET SERVICE: MY LIFE WITH FIVE PRESIDENTS”.
U.S. Secret Service Agent Rufus Youngblood was in charge of the vice presidential detail on that tragic day in Dallas when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Immediately upon hearing shots being fired, he pushed Lyndon B. Johnson to the floor of their limousine, shielding the vice president’s body with his own. This memoir, originally published by Simon & Schuster in 1973, is a candid account of Youngblood’s tenure with this crucial government agency during which he was assigned to protect Presidents Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon. Going behind the scenes of some of America’s most pivotal events, he describes the complexities, the risks, and the constant tensions of protecting the American president—including some of the humorous moments and unique characteristics of the chief executives themselves. This new edition now includes 48 pages of archival photographs to enhance readers’ appreciation of this personal,
firsthand account of a critical period in American history.
