MOBILE, Ala. – The Friends of the Spring Hill College Library is hosting a literary evening featuring local author Roy Hoffman. "Conversations with Roy Hoffman" is Wednesday, April 9, at 7 p.m. at Stewartfield.

Hoffman will discuss his latest book, "Come Landfall." Inspired by true events, the book has its seeds in the saga of his uncle, Maj. Roy Robinton, U.S. Marine Corps. A WWII prisoner of war in the Philippines, he disappeared as captive on a Japanese "hellship."

Dr. Ron O’Gorman is the moderator. A book signing and light refreshments follow the event. The public is invited. The event is free for Friends members and a donation is encouraged for others.
