ACC hosts local author Peter Stekel this Thursday

October 19, 2010

Please join us at our monthly meeting this Thursday and hear from local Alki author, Peter Stekel.  Peter will talk about his latest book and share details and photographs from his unexpected adventure in the High Sierra.

In October 2005, two mountaineers climbing above Mendel Glacier in the High Sierra found the mummified remains of a man in a WW II uniform, entombed in the ice. The “Frozen Airman” discovery created a media storm and a mystery that drew author Peter Stekel to investigate. What did happen to the four-man crew who perished on a routine navigation training flight in 1942, 150 miles off-course from its reported destination?

by local author, Peter Stekel

Stekel found bad weather, bad luck, and bad timing. Empty graves, botched records, and misguided recovery efforts. Then, in 2007, the unimaginable happened again. Stekel himself discovered a second body in the glacier. Another young man would finally be coming home.

Presentation begins at 7 p.m. at the UCC Church at 6115 Hinds St.  Bring a friend!
