For those of you who haven't heard yet, local Galveston Daily News reporter Rhiannon Meyers and ex-reporter Leigh Jones have written a book detailing certain accounts and aspects of Hurricane Ike and it's aftermath. Infinite Monster (the name of the book) hit stores this week and already seems to be garnering praise. It promises to delve into the storm in ways other Ike books have yet to do, after all, it's from a local's perspective.
I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. And better yet. You can buy the book and get it signed this evening at the Galveston Daily News main office (8522 Teichman Road) from 4-7 p.m. And if you miss that, stop by The Admiralty (2221 Strand) tomorrow from noon-4 p.m. for another chance to meet the authors and get a signed book of your own.
Locally, the book has been well received so far with spots on the morning TV show for Houston Fox 26 as well as a radio interview on KUHF Conversations.
So Islanders, be sure to support local and get yourself a copy of Infinite Monster. Read it. And stand even taller for being able to call yourself an Islander By Choice.
