Booksigning and Book Talk - Monday, August 20, 2007 at 6 PM

Dr. John Griffin will speak at the library about his new book, Lt. Bill Farrow: Doolittle Raider. Lt. Bill Farrow, a native of Darlington, SC, and the pilot of a B-25 bomber, volunteered for Gen. Jimmy Doolittle’s famous Raid On Tokyo on April 28, 1942, a near suicide mission. The day following that raid the Japanese captured Farrow and his crew. Following six months of starvation & the most horrible tortures that one could imagine, Farrow was taken to a deserted cemetery and brutally executed by the Japanese.
Through it all, Lt. Farrow’s faith never wavered. Today, after more than half a century, he remains an inspiration.
The program is free and open to the public.
