Vroman’s Local Author Day featuring Ross Victory, Molly Brandenburg, and Neda Disney

Vroman’s Local Author Day featuring Ross Victory, Molly Bradenburg, and Neda Disney January 26th at 4pm

Ross Victory presents and signs Views from the Cockpit

Views from the Cockpit: The Journey of a Son is a memoir born from pain. Page by page, year by year, tender father-son memories of airplane watching transform into nightmarish, turbulent family drama.

Upon the discovery that his father had been the victim of severe elder abuse as his health was rapidly deteriorating, the author finds himself reevaluating the decisions his father made throughout his life. With an unshakable ending, the author's probing dissection of a man he thought he knew reckons with disloyalty, depression, religion and death, leaving no stone unturned.  Through sharp, sometimes hilariously brash analysis, decorated in plane metaphors and imagery, the author expresses his commitment to truth with sincerity and transparency. He reaches for forgiveness, understanding and compromise in the face of absurdity and uncompromising rigidity.  Ultimately, he contemplates a different "flight path" drawn from past lessons. He encourages readers to do the same.

Molly Brandenburg presents and signs Letters From Bud

Letters From Bud is the remarkable, first-hand account of the harrowing air war in Europe as told by WW2 flight navigator and bombardier John "Bud" Brandenburg, in his letters home during the conflict, from 1944-45. With guts, wit and grace, Brandenburg records his experiences with the daring "Koltun crew," which flew 30 missions over Europe. Through numerous strokes of fate, the crew survived a run of missions with the "bloody" 492nd Bomb Group, a unit that endured an 80 percent casualty rate as the men faced down the seemingly unstoppable German Luftwaffe. Brandenburg's letters create a stirring picture of one young man's experiences during the war, as he served with the US Army Air Corps in Europe and then navigated supply runs with the Air Transport Command in the exotic North African and Middle Eastern theaters. Re-edited for publication by his daughter Molly, Bud's witty and often heartbreaking observations of life during the final, epoch-changing days of the war make for an unforgettable and highly adventurous read.

Neda Disney presents and signs Planting Wolves

A writer in a purgatory bar, an art collecting housewife who time travels, a movie Production Assistant with stigmata, a codependent AA sponsor, a sex addict, a movie star with issues, a two-time liver transplant recipient and an abusive TV costumer who gets what's coming to her.

All connected to one another but completely and utterly alone.
