Mark Obmascik - The Storm on Our Shores

One Island, Two Soldiers, and the Forgotten Battle of World War II, a Book Talk & Signing

Mark Obmascik is the local Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and bestselling author of The Big Year, which was made into a movie, and Halfway to Heaven. He was also the lead writer for The Denver Post team that won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize. Obmascik will discuss and sign The Storm on Our Shores: One Island, Two Soldiers, and the Forgotten Battle of World War II ($28.00 Atria Books).

This is a heart-wrenching but ultimately redemptive story of two World War II soldiers--a Japanese surgeon and an American sergeant--during a brutal Alaskan battle in which the sergeant discovers the medic's revelatory and fascinating diary that changed our war-torn society’s perceptions of Japan.
