At Taylor Books: New novel on Hawks Nest Disaster


Tomorrow evening, Dwight Harshbarger will be reading from and signing copies of his new book about the Hawks Nest Disaster.

Witness At Hawks Nest is a novel about the disaster, in which hundreds of workers died of acute silicosis while digging the hydro-electric tunnel for Union Carbide. You can learn more about the book, and about Harshbarger, at this Web site.

The reading and book signing is from 6:45 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. Saturday. (though the time is listed differently on Taylor’s Web site).
