Local author & documentarian Zed Merrill will discuss his books, including The Missing Pages: From the History Book of World War II. Books will also be available for purchase.

Zed Merrill served as a signalman attached to a Navy gun crew aboard the Liberty Ship S.S. Edwin Markham in the Pacific Ocean. Upon his discharge from the navy he began a career in advertising that spanned 56 years. After retiring from advertising, Merrill devoted his full attention to the video documentary work that he had begun in 1996. The documentaries he produced focused on little known World War II military units and events. This new phase of his career earned him eight international awards and opened the door to a new career in writing.
