Author to visit Reed City library

REED CITY — John Kozak, author of "Through the Eyes of Rose: A Mother's Flight to Freedom in a Memory Mosaic," will visit the Reed City Area District Library at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 4.

The book chronicles his mother's roots in the Detroit area and her harrowing escape from Communist occupied Czechoslovakia with her two children. Rose's stories ends with a return to Michigan and a long, full life. The city of Reed City also plays a role in the story.

The event will host a question and answer forum with Kozak and copies of the book will be available for purchase. The library also has copies for borrowing.
