Don Michel, former owner and operator of WRAJ and WRAJ-FM in Anna, Illinois,
will host a book signing and review of his newly published Getting to know Walter Cronkite, Buckminster Fuller, Dr. Michael DeBakey, Arthur Godfrey and Ann Landers in Anna and Carbondale mid-June.

In addition to the well-known personalities listed in the title, many local personalities also make appearances in the text, which covers a period of 20 years when Michel operated WRAJ in Anna. Several pages are devoted to the rescue of St. Anne’s church and the story of Bill Gulley who began life in poverty from Wetaug, Illinois, and rose to become Military Officer of the White House under four U.S. Presidents.

The book will be reviewed at the St. Anne’s Church on Main Street in Anna on Wednesday, June 14th, from 4:00-6:00pm and at the Bookworm store 618 E. Walnut street in Carbondale from 4:00-6:00pm Thursday, June 15.

Parking in Anna will be available behind the Stinson Memorial Library. There will be light refreshments served at the Anna presentation.
