Author Steven D. Harris will discuss the people, places and events contained in his new book, "Faded Lines of Gray," Sunday at 2 p.m. at Grounds For Thought, 174 S. Main St., Bowling Green.
The historical fiction is based on a true story, an attempt to free rebel prisoners held captive on Johnson's Island near Sandusky and simultaneously capture the only U.S. warship on the Great Lakes, the U.S.S. Michigan.
Military Press said the book "takes two very real historical people and brings them to life courtesy of the author's vivid imagination."
