Author Visit - Jim Zitzelsberger

Retired teacher Jim Zitzelsberger will discuss his debut novel, "Cry for the Water Buffalo" at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 14, at the Oshkosh Public Library.

Cry for the Water Buffalo is the story of a Vietnamese family decimated by the war around them and a sniper caught up in the military machine. The characters are shaped by the war, driven by it, and worst of all never freed from it. The book is fiction but clearly draws on the author's experience serving two tours of duty in Vietnam with Naval Mobil Construction Battalion (MCB) 128 stationed at Da Nang & Quang Tri from 1967-69.

The program is free and open to the pubic; for more information please call the Library at 236-5205.
