LMGA Speaker Series Event
Landings Resident and Author Mike Morris
Escape From Saigon
5:30 pm May 2, 2017
Azalea Room at Plantation Clubhouse
Landings resident and author Mike Morris will talk about his thrilling new novel "Escape from Saigon." If you haven't met Mike, he is warm, affable, easy to talk to, engaging and interesting--just like his book. Mike's book is about the people (civilians, journalists, expatriates, Embassy, CIA, and military personnel) caught up in the final days of the Vietnam War.
Mike is a combat veteran of Vietnam, a journalist, and a former national magazine editor. His personal background, combined with extensive research efforts, have infused the novel with exciting anecdotal stories along with some surprising documentation. This allowed him--and now you--to see this historic event in a way that you are sure to find extremely interesting. The novel, co-authored with fellow veteran Dick Pirozzolo, has already won praise from noted authors, journalists, LMGA members, and other Landings residents. Come see for yourself what all the buzz is about!
