Author Michael Freeland to Sign at Starbucks

 

Starbucks CoffeeClarksville, TN – Author Michael Freeland, author of “Blood River to Berlin” and “Time and The River”, will sign his books this Saturday, December 17th, at 10:00am at the Starbucks on Madison Street in Clarksville TN.

Octogenarian Freeland is a member of the Greatest Generation. He served as a medic during World War II and wrote of his experiences in both books. “Time and The River” features photographs by his wife, Ellen.

Freeland has been featured in articles on www.clarksvilleonline.com on several occasions. His first hand descriptions of his growing up in rural Kentucky and being introduced to war through the injuries and casualties of American soldiers are unforgettable.

Following is a memorable quotation from his speech on the Fourth of July, “I’ve been to war, I’ve tasted my own fear, and I’ve revisited battlefields and cemeteries. I’ve followed the trail of too many white crosses and I know that freedom is like a fragile plant and like any living thing, it needs to be nourished to stay alive and I know unless we are careful, it can be forever lost.”

Don’t miss this free opportunity to meet one of our Veterans who served with the 82nd Airborne Division and who visited alongside his follow patriots the battlefields in France on the 50th anniversary of D-Day.

See you at Starbucks!
