That Summer of ’45, by G. Sam Piatt

The Regional Readers book group meets Tuesday, August 30 in the former JSF Conference Room (now Right Eye Graphics). Coffee and conversation at 2:00 p.m.; book discussion at 2:30 p.m.

The August selection is That Summer of ’45: A Boy’s Adventure Story by G. Sam Piatt. That Summer of ’45 is a novel that follows a group of boys growing up in a small town on the Ohio River. While having real and imagined adventures, they deal with the effects World War II has on the lives of the people they know and love in their community.

That Summer of ’45 was written by G. Sam Piatt, a regional journalist whose outdoor column ran for 47 years until his death in June of this year.

The book group is open to all and new members are always welcome. We encourage suggestions for the 2022 reading list.
