Book Gallery to host authors

Daily Staff Report

The Winchester Book Gallery will welcome two authors this week for book signings today and Saturday.

First Jeffrey Frank, author of "Ike and Dick: Portrait of a Strange Political Marriage," will be available to sign books from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. today.

Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Roger Engle, of Hedgesville, W.Va., will be in Winchester to sign his book "Stories: From a Small Town."

In "Ike and Dick," Frank rediscovers two compelling figures -- Dwight D. Eisenhower and Richard Nixon -- by offering a view of the younger Nixon as a striving tactician and the ever more perplexing person that he became, according to promotional information from the book gallery.

Frank portrays Eisenhower, the legendary soldier, as a cold, even vain man with a warm smile whose instincts about war and peace far outpaced his understanding of the changes occurring in his own country.

Engle's book takes readers through a mental journey of his hometown, and in doing so, rediscoveres his childhood around every corner.

Stories from a Small Town places the reader in Hedgesville between the years of 1948 and 1964, guided through the eyes of a child.

Winchester Book Gallery is located at 185 N. Loudoun St., Winchester. For more information, call 667-3444 or visit winchesterbookgallery.com.
