Russell Lunsford book talk and signing at Adair Co. Public Library
Russell Lunsford will be at the Adair County Public Library Saturday,March 14, 2009, at 10:00amCT to talk about his book, Letters From A Captive Heart: America's Heartbreak in the POW Camps of North Korea.
Lunsford was born in Louisville Kentucky where he attended and graduated from Pleasure Ridge Park High School. He attended Lindsey Wilson College, Elizabethtown Community College and Western Kentucky University.
He married Janice Loy in October 1970. Lunsford entered the Army in July 1970 and completed three years enlistment. He entered the Army Reserves in June 1981 and served two tours of duty in Kuwait. He retired with 27 years of service from the US Army and the Army Reserves.
"Letters From a Captive Heart" deals with America's heartbreak in the POW camps of North Korea. The contrast between the innocence of the early 1950's in rural Kentucky and the horrific reality of the POW camps is starkly portrayed as the story travels back and forth from the "Land of the Morning Calm," Korea, to the Heartland of America.
A letter appears at the end of each chapter and brings the heartache and desperation of each character into perspective. The heart breaks for the story's main characters as they struggle to survive.
Please join us Saturday March 14th at 10:00amCT as Mr. Russell Lunsford discusses his book, "Letters From a Captive Heart" which is set in the Fairplay area of Adair County, KY. For more information please call the Adair County Public Library at (270) 384-2472.
