Former Morning News scribe Bill Marvel has co-authored a book with a Marine named R.V. Burgin called Islands of the Damned. It’s described as “an unvarnished and moving memoir of a Marine veteran who fought his way across the Pacific Theater of World War II — whose story is featured in the upcoming HBO series The Pacific.” Well, tonight at 7 p.m. Marvel will do the author thing at the Preston-Royal Borders. If you’re curious, go on out and see the man. He won’t bite.
