Local author Kivi to hold book signing

Montesano author Ruth Kivi will be signing copies of her new book, “Dad Goes Home,” from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday at

Westport Winery.

Says Kivi of her book: “All in all, my Dad led a very full life. He was born shortly after the turn of the century. He saw electricity come into use. Folks pulled themselves out of the Great Depression and moved into the later 1930s, where, according to Dad, ‘airplanes were causing much excitement.’ In the early 1940s, the whole world went to war. He lived through the era of change and prosperity in the ’50s. From there, modern medicine came into the future, hand in hand with a myriad of electronic inventions. One could say, he saw it all.”
