Book presentation

HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. -- Come at 6 p.m. and spend an evening at the Cheney Library and meet Col. Edward Fleming (Ret.). He is the author of "Heart of the Storm." There will be a DVD presentation to accompany his book.

Fleming takes readers along for a bracing ride as he recounts the most thrilling episodes of his long career. "Heart of the Storm" brings to life dramatic jungle rescues in the Philippines, the longest helicopter rescue mission in history, to save crew members of a Ukrainian freighter 840 miles off the coast of Nova Scotia, a nearly disastrous rescue off a listing two-masted schooner during an Atlantic winter storm.

Books can be purchased during the evening or ordered with library staff. Call the library with any questions at 518-686-9401 or visit
