Author Jerry Koch will discuss his historical work “My Father, Myself: Letters, Mysteries and Discoveries from WWII” at the next Fourth Friday Readings, a free event set for 6:15 p.m. on Oct. 25 in the media room at The Lodge, 660 Evergreen Farm Way.

Koch’s work is the story of an infantryman drafted into the trenches of hell. The book follows the soldier through his letters home, sent from basic training through his last days on Okinawa.

Koch is an outdoorsman and geologist who has taught at Harvard. He and his wife now live in Sequim.

Following the featured speaker is an hour of 5-minute open mic readings. Interested writers should rehearse because readings are timed; arrive early to sign up.
