Bring your own book or buy a copy there and get it signed by the author and one of the story's heroes!
GEORGE’S BOOKS NOW AVAILABLE DOWNTOWN COLORADO SPRINGS.
Colorado Springs readers interested in George’s books can now skip the wait for delivery and get instant gratification! THE PARTY DOLLS is now available at two of Colorado Springs’ coolest bookstores—Poor Richard’s and Tattered Cover—and Poor Richard’s stocks SOUL AFFLICTED, too!
Both stores are downtown on Tejon Street, Poor Richard’s is a few doors south of Boulder Street at 320 N. Tejon St., while Tattered Cover is two blocks away, just north of Kiowa Street at 112 N. Tejon. Both stores feature awesome coffee and wine bars, so grab a book and a beverage the next time you’re strolling the city’s cool little downtown!
Some of the POWs interviewed for THE PARTY DOLLS have died since the interviews 20 years ago. Throughout the publication process, George and has team had been trying to reach the families of those POWs to let them know of the book and share their loved ones’ interviews with them.
Until this story on March 31, 2021, George and his team still had not found the family of Room 6 prisoner and retired Air Force Lt. Colonel Al Meyer. However, a TV station in his hometown of College Station interviewed author George Hayward about The Party Dolls. George asked for help in finding Meyer’s family, and within two hours of the story airing, he was talking to Meyer’s wife on the phone! One of her relatives saw the story, called her, and they connected soon after. Thank you, Bary Roy at KCEN!
