Ben Franklin Oberlin, aka Mindfair Books, hosts world-class authors on a regular basis. Now the venue hosts Bill Lascher, a Portland journalist, who speaks about and signs his acclaimed nonfiction book Eve of a Hundred Midnights.
Think your honeymoon was hell on earth? Lascher rediscovers the true WWII story of Melville Jacoby, a handsome foreign correspondent specializing in Far East affairs, who fell for Annalee Whitmore, a Hollywood scriptwriter turned reporter.
Their 1941 wedding coincided with the unleashed Japan’s Imperial war machine blazing its way through the Pacific — with the newlyweds barely keeping one step ahead of the fighting.
Admission is free.
