Author connects with Vietnam veterans through book about ex-husband

Book Notes: Vietnam memoir a unique partnership

Julie Titone and Grady Myers were married when they started work on his Vietnam memoir “Boocoo Dinky Dow.” They finished it as a divorced couple when Myers became bedridden; he died in 2011. Titone, a former Spokesman-Review editor and reporter, will read from the self-published memoir, which features Myers’ illustrations, at 7 p.m. Friday at Auntie’s Bookstore, 402 W. Main Ave. Titone, who now works at Washington State University in Pullman, took a few minutes to answer five questions about the book.
