Best-selling author Hampton Sides will make a National Writers Series appearance on Thursday, Sept. 17, at 7 pm. at the City Opera House in downtown Traverse City. He will discuss his newest book — a white-knuckle tale of polar exploration and survival in the most unforgiving territory on Earth.

Hampton Sides is best known for Ghost Soldiers, which sold more than one million copies and was translated into a dozen foreign languages. His epic story of Kit Carson, Blood and Thunder, was named one of the 10 Best Books of 2006 by Time magazine and is under development for the screen. He also wrote about the international hunt for Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassin in Hellhound on His Trail. That book earned him a Edgar Award nomination and was named one of the best books of the year by O, The Oprah Magazine, and Time magazine.
