The Torrance Historical Society, in partnership with the Torrance Library, is hosting a Meet the Author event with Ron Kovic on Saturday, November 19 at 2 p.m. and the Katy Geissert Civic Center Library.
Ron Kovic is a Vietnam Veteran, peace-activist and best-selling author of Born on the Fourth of July, and the newly published Hurricane Street.
2016 marks the 40 anniversary since the release of Born on the Fourth of July, and 25 years since Tom Cruise portrayed Ron Kovic in Oliver Stone’s Oscar-winning film of the same name.
Kovic will be appearing at the Katy Geissert Civic Center Library for a discussion and book signing of his new book Hurricane Street, an impassioned, timely memoir about the American Veterans Movement, which picks up where Born on the Fourth of July left off. Kovic is an impassioned advocate for better treatment of Veterans.
Both books will be available for signing and purchase (check, cash and credit cards accepted). Born on the Fourth of July is a special 40 anniversary reprint edition.
This event is free and open to the public. No reservations are necessary, but seating is limited to first-come/first-served.
The Katy Geissert Civic Center Library is located at 3301 Torrance Boulevard, Torrance, CA 90503,
