Remembering Tom Clancy

In order to honor Tom Clancy, one of the best-read authors of Fairbanks Branch Library readers, the library staff has created a special display of books written by Mr. Clancy.  One of the masters of the modern-day thriller, he applied his knowledge of the military to many of his stories and created memorable characters who have been portrayed in several films by well-known actors.  Tom Clancy died Tuesday, October 1, in Baltimore, Maryland at the age of 66.  If you have not read one of his books, please give yourself a treat and pick one from our display to read.
