Brian Petersen Book Signing

Join us Monday as we welcome author Brian Petersen for a discussion and signing of his book, "Vanish."

Vanish is a fictional account of the characters involved in the North Dakota town "New Town" and two towns that came to create New Town when they built the dam during the 1950's.

"'Vanish" starts fast, hits hard and drills deep into the riches of the North Dakoa oil patch region, and even deeper into the hearts of those who call it home. "-- Jake Ellison, News Producer for Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
