Meet the Author: John Babb
The Collierville Burch Library welcomes John Babb, author of Orphan Hero: a Novel of the Civil War. He will be at the library for a book signing on Monday, January 29th from 5:00-7:00 pm.
Babb is a former U.S. Assistant Surgeon General, as well as a retired rear admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service. The book is based on the life of the author's great-grandfather in the mid-nineteenth century. Orphan Hero is a tale of courage and perseverance in the face of incredible hardship. His great-grandfather ran away from home in Indiana in 1849, fleeing a vindictive step-mother, and chasing his father to the California goldfields. He was eight years old.
