On February 12, 2015, from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, author John William Davis will be discussing his book, Rainy Street Stories: Reflections on Secret Wars, Espionage, and Terrorism in Salmon Library room 111. All are invited to attend this talk. Refreshments will be provided. For more information, see our blog post about this talk

Rainy Street Stories is a composition of powerful reflections on today’s espionage, terrorism, and secret wars. These stories, essays, and poems by John Davis, a retired intelligence officer, take place from Europe, to Asia, and back to the Americas. He lived overseas for many years, where he served as a soldier, civil servant, and gifted linguist. Davis writes with a thoughtful, compassionate, and fair assessment of his lifetime lived during wars and conflicts which were his generation’s legacy from World War II. He recounts mysterious, sometimes strangely suggestive, even curiously puzzling tales. Each will cause the reader to think. (from Red Bike Publishing)
