Author Signing Events

Chuck Pora

When: Saturday, October 21st from 11AM - 1PM

Local author and lifelong Erie resident Chuck Pora will be reading the opening chapter of "Peace to You Too, Brother," a hard-hitting historical novel that is based on a true story of three young people from Erie in the Sixties who were trying to build their futures, but had the Vietnam War standing in their way. Chuck's novel takes you through the entire Vietnam War era, and shows how the war affected everybody, whether they served or not. "It's a story of dreams, devotion, and devastation," he says.

Chuck will also be signing his book, as well as his five books of short stories about growing up in Erie in the Sixties, "Pora Lotta Lore," "Pora Lot More Lore," "My Affliction," "Why We Never Had Dates," and "Positively State Street." All five books are available at the store and make nice, inexpensive gifts.

Save the date and come meet one of Erie's favorite authors!
