Bad Rock Books Discussion Group talks about “Mutiny,” by David Hagberg and Boris Gindin, at its April 18 meeting.

The book tells the real-life story behind “The Hunt for Red October,” the blockbuster Tom Clancy novel that became a movie of the same name. “Mutiny” offers an eye-opening look at the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War, as told by a man who lived through it all.

The group meets at 7 p.m. at Bad Rock Books on Nucleus Avenue in Columbia Falls. All are welcome. Treats are provided.

For more information, call Carol Rocks at 892-0515.

In 1968, a nuclear-armed Soviet submarine sank off Hawaii, hundreds of miles closer to American shores than it should have been. Evidence suggests the sub sank while attempting to fire a nuclear missile, most likely at the naval base at Pearl Harbor.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. in the library meeting room; everyone is welcome. Books may be available for checkout.

For more information, call the library at 862-9914.
