Harold Brown, of Port Clinton, will discuss “Keep Your Airspeed Up: The Story of a Tuskegee Airman,” a book he wrote with Marsha Bordner chronicling his life and World War II service.

On his 30th mission, his plane was shot down over Nazi territory, and he became a prisoner of war. He went on to serve in the military for 23 years, becoming a lieutenant colonel. Brown also earned a Ph.D., retiring from Columbus State Community College as vice president of academic affairs. The presentation will begin with a brief film about Brown’s service, with Brown and Bordner on hand to sign copies of the book. Location: Winebrenner Theological Seminary’s TLB Auditorium.
