Longtime Redlands resident, retired cartoonist, and A.K. Smiley Library supporter Ken Jolly will discuss his new emoir, Confessions of a Saigon Warrior. Written with both humor and poignancy, Jolly’s book tells the tale of his time serving in the United States Army during the late 1960s in Vietnam.
In Jolly’s own words, “There are many books about America’s involvement in Southeast Asia but none have summoned up the daily stupidity and absurdity of being a soldier.” Jolly’s humor and intelligence are sure to set the stage for a lively, thought-provoking discussion.
