Local author Dale Kueter has just published a new book of historical fiction, Motel Sepia! The book recounts the story of Cecil Reed, a black Cedar Rapids, Iowa, businessman, and the real Motel Sepia in the mid-1950s. Dale will talk about the book and some of his research, and will be avialable for questions. He'll have books for sale and will be happy to sign copies (paperback $21; hardcover $35). You can learn more about Dale and his latest book at motelsepia.com. Here's a review of Dale's book from the October 9 Gazette.
