Local author Steve Aavang to discuss book at Woodstock library

Published: Wednesday, May 22, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

WOODSTOCK – In honor of Memorial Day, local author Steve Aavang will be at the Woodstock Public Library, 414 W. Judd St., at 7 p.m. Thursday to discuss his book, "In Love with Freedom: the True Story of a Remarkable Woman."

Aavang grew up as part of a five-generation Woodstock family, but he will take attendees on a journey back 100 years and across the continents of Europe and North America, where they will learn about one of the most incredible women of the 21st century.

Attendees will hear how a Romanian princess can still today teach Americans what freedom and Memorial Day is all about in her tribute to the nation's soldiers.

Copies of the book will be available during the event for purchase and for author signings. Registration is requested and can be done online at www.woodstockpubliclibrary.org or by phone at 815-338-0542.
