The Tatra Eagle Soars Sunday at Polonia Bookstore

tatra.jpgFor fans of historical fiction, catch J. Victor Tomaszek, author of The Tatra Eagle, on Sunday, November 17, 2pm at Polonia Book Store, 4732 N. Millwaukee Ave.

The Tatra Eagle is set in 1683 during the Ottoman Turks invasion of Vienna, Austria. Boleslaw Radok, a young Polish boy living with his family of shepherds in the Tatra Mountains, learns of his father's death and is faced with the decision to join the fight against the Turks. Like the white eagle of the Tatra Mountains, the young warrior flies into battle.

Tomaszek will read from the book and discuss with attendees, and books will be available .
