Dave Lange Appearance and Signings
A veteran of the US Navy riverine forces in Vietnam, long-time Chagrin Valley Times editor Dave Lange’s book recounts his rambunctious coming of age story during one of the most tumultuous eras in American history, a time largely shaped by drugs, rock ‘n’ roll, politics… and war.
