    Join Ron Tanner as he reads from his latest book, Missile Paradise, set in the Marshall Islands.
    Following four interconnected story lines—the meltdown of a burned-out cultural liaison who has “gone native”; a young programmer who has lost his leg in a reckless solo sailing journey; the struggles of a young widow with two children whose husband drowned in a mysterious diving accident; and the destructive spiral of a Marshallese teenager whose American girlfriend rejects him when she returns to the States—Missile Paradise is an epic, heartbreaking, and satirical novel about the clash of cultures between the Americans trying to realize their American Dream in this seeming paradise, and the Marshallese who are both angered and bedazzled by that dream.
