SEASIDE - The Friends of the Seaside Library will host Patty Hardin, author of "Welcome Home," at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 7. The event will take place in the Community Room and there will be book sales and signings.

"Welcome Home" is a compilation of stories from Vietnam veterans that have been collected by the author. The book includes first-person accounts from 19 different vets and chronicles events, some of which are sad and some tragic, while others carry a touch of humor. We get a glimpse of the forces that shaped young men's lives, told from the perspective of years gone by and lives lived.

Hardin wants her book to be much more than a group of stories and hopes it can be a wider-reaching "thank you" to those who served.

Seaside Public Library is located at 1131 Broadway, across from the Sunset Empire Park and Recreation Swimming Pool. For more information call (503) 738-6742 or visit us and
