On Saturday, June 7, the new book “Pearl Harbor Honor Flight: One Last Goodbye”, by master photographers and historians Billie and Robert Nicholson, will arrive at Hawsey’s Book Index in Pensacola.
Hawsey’s Book Index will host a special appearance and book signing by the authors on Saturday, June 7, 2014, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm as part of a four-month book tour in the Gulf Coast area. Hawsey’s Book Index is located at 803 N. Navy Blvd in Pensacola.
Several of the last remaining Pearl Harbor survivors, whose stories and original pictures are in the book, are now in their 90’s and live in the Pensacola area. They are slated to attend the book signing and will be part of the afternoon’s presentation.
The 80-page premium color 1st edition book tells the touching story of the Pensacola community coming together to make an elderly veteran’s dream come true — to return to Pearl Harbor and say “one last goodbye” to his friends and comrades who were with him that day so long ago on December 7, 1941.
Filled with photos by the Nicholsons of the survivors’ recent return to Pearl Harbor, the book is brilliantly interspersed with historic pictures and eyewitness accounts of the attack. The beautiful color images pay homage to these military veterans of our Greatest Generation for their extraordinary courage and personal sacrifice. Says author Robert Nicholson, “the book was designed as a keepsake 1st edition hardcover book and lets the reader visually experience the enduring triumph of the human spirit that made our country great during World War II.”
Proceeds from all book sales of “Pearl Harbor Honor Flight: One Last Goodbye” will go to benefit the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association.
