USS BUNKER HILL

April 24, 2015

With the help of the good folks at Viking, I was able to send signed copies of my latest to the officers of the USS BUNKER HILL, a 567-foot CG 52 currently in the Middle East.  Here I’m holding a copy of my book that was signed by all the officers.  Underneath the book is a U.S. flag that was flown in my honor on Feb. 17, 2015 in the Arabian Gulf.  Needless to say, I am humbled and greatly gratified that Captain Sterling Dawley and his officers enjoyed BUNKER HILL.

One Book, One Town—New Canaan

April 4, 2014

I’m in New Canaan to talk about In the Heart of the Sea as part of the “One Book, One Town” program.  After a walk in Waveny Park I stopped by at Elm Street Books, a terrific independent store right in the middle of town. A couple of days ago I had a fun Skype session with a group of students from the New Canaan High School.
