Mark Miller, a former Grand Island teacher and coach, hopes to recall his memories with his fellow students and talk about storytelling Monday night at the Grand Island Library.
Miller is the author of a collection of 14 short stories, titled “In Bright Sunshine”.
From 7 pm he will read excerpts from “In Bright Sunshine”, which is his first published book. He will sign and sell copies of the book, priced at $ 15.
Miller, who lives in Genoa, taught English from 1981 to 1989 at Grand Island Senior High. From 1983 to 1989 he was the head coach of the boys and girls cross country and the head coach of the boys’ track and field.
Miller, 66, said he’s been writing stories “pretty much my whole life.”
“In Bright Sunshine” includes stories about growing up in Nebraska, as well as old family stories and some science fiction stories.
“It’s a collective journey through time, romance, awkwardness, and heartbreak that you won’t want to miss,” the book says.
Miller hopes he gets the chance to visit former students at the rally.
A graduate of Wayne State College, he taught and coached in Madison for three years before earning his master’s degree and moving to Grand Island.
