Author Dr. Mark Scott Smith, of Manzanita, will read excerpts from his new novel “Enemy in the Mirror: Love and Fury in the Pacific War” at 7 p.m., Saturday, November 3rd at the Hoffman Center in Manzanita. Admission will be free.
When Smith, an academic pediatrician, retired from the University of Washington to live in Manzanita, he became intrigued with the history of Imperial Japanese attacks on Oregon during World War II.
After several years of research here and in Japan, he published a fictionalized account of these events from both American and Japanese viewpoints. The public is invited to the presentation during which Dr. Smith will review the history of these events.
