Noted jazz journalist, chronicler, and historian Gary Giddins visits with the second installment of his major biographical project on Spokane native son Bing Crosby. Bing Crosby: Swinging on a Star: The War Years 1940 - 1946 (Little, Brown and Company) picks up where Bing Crosby: A Pocketful of Dreams 1903 -1940 left off. This volume obviously covers the World War II era, but includes creative activity such as the making of White Christmas.

Gary will be on hand to discuss the book and sign purchased copies.
