Lynn met this young gentleman, Mr. William Urban, at the San Diego Book Festival. Mr. Urban is a survivor of the WWII Battle of Okinawa.
In 2016, Lynn was surprised to see this copy of Same Kind of Different as Me, a three-year New York Times bestseller, on featured display at the then-new Amazon bookstore in La Jolla, California. At the time, the book was 10 years old!
