Sally Bair, an author from near Washburn, will present a book talk on her latest book "Williwaw Winds." It begins at 2 p.m. today in the library classroom. She will have copies of her book available and the Friends of the Library provide refreshments. This is an inspirational adventure story of Jake, a rebellious teenager who goes out to the Bering Sea with a crab fishing crew. While fighting to stay alive during a dreadful wind storm called a williwaw, he learns first-hand about God's faithfulness. "Williwaw Winds" is based on a true story of how the author's son and four others were rescued from the sea.
