Bryan Radzin holding one of his books
Setting goals comes easy for most folks, but accomplishing them is another thing altogether. Bryan Radzin, a graduate of Humboldt State University and local resident has accomplished his goal of publishing a book each year by his birthday in July. For seven consecutive years, this goal has been successfully met. Radzin’s first three books were precursors to his novel, Search for Truth…the seeker begins and his latest book titled Search for Truth…A rude awakening originates in the south, dealing with a lot of racial issues and a new president, based on #45. The fifth sequel is currently in the working stages, due out summer 2018. The series will contain seven books in total. For more information go to his website at
Please join Bryan in the Library Fishbowl, 6-8pm on Friday, April 13th for a book reading, discussion, and signing!
