Eagle Eye Book Shop says
We are excited to be hosting and supporting a local author, Bernard N. Lee Jr. as he signs and talks about his new book A Look Back In Time: Memoir Of A Military Kid In The 50's at Eagle Eye Book Shop. He will be talking about what life was like and reminiscing about many things that happened growing up in Georgia as a black child on a military base on Thursday, October 8th at 7pm.

A Look Back In Time: Memoir of a Military Kid in the Fifties is a fascinating, insightful, inspiring, and sometimes hilarious chronicle of life while growing up in a military family - Colonel Arnold R. Goodson, United States Army. When I was a child, we were always moving from one place to another. Making friends was something I looked forward to with an uneasy anticipation. My dad was in the military. We moved, like clockwork, every three years until I was more than twenty-years-old. The things I saw and the places I lived are now a part of history. They form the canvass for A Look Back In Time: Memoir of a Military Kid in the Fifties.

There's Humor: On the farm, the rooster crows before the sun rises and wakes long before a dreaming boy wants to open his eyes. That is another reason why I hated roosters. They don't work like your alarm clock. You can't punch them and then go back to sleep.

There's Intrigue: Dad sat in the chair next to the doorway. I plopped down into one right next to him. Although we were sitting just a few inches apart, I felt like I was marooned on Mars. My dad was silent and removed. Once again, I felt abandoned.

There's Suspense: As I entered the cobblestone roadway, there was a bright light shining in my eyes. Then, I heard the horn blow and wheels screech. I looked right into the jaws of death. I was headed straight for a military personnel carrier three sizes bigger than a Ford F150. I hit the brakes, braced myself, and waited for the truck to wipe me out!

There's Romance: I could still smell the aroma of her perfume long after I could no longer see the greyhound on the back of the bus.

There's Something for Young and Old: I invite you to go along so that you can experience what it was like for a young man of color to grow up in the U.S.A. during the fifties. I am excited about the chance to share these memories with you. I hope you will find significant reflections of your own childhood among them.
