Retired UW-Green Bay faculty member Richard “Dick” Logan is receiving national publicity for his new book Alone: Orphaned on the Ocean. Written by Logan and co-authored by Tere Duperrault Fassbender, the book tells her story: When she was age 11, her family was murdered at sea, and she was rescued after surviving days with no food or water. Tune in to Today (NBC) from 8 to 8:30 a.m. (subject to change) Thursday (May 6) for an appearance by the co-authors. The book follows Duperrault Fassbender’s survival, but also her present perspective on the richness of life despite loss and tragedy.
Logan at Green Bay Barnes & Noble next week
Read more about the book and Logan’s busy retirement, or stop by Logan’s book signing event at Barnes & Noble, Oneida St., Green Bay from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 14. Logan, who continues to work (“when he wants”) and lives in a Minneapolis suburb, is kept company by his wife, Carol, children and grandchildren. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org or “friend” him on Facebook.
