The book signing by retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North at Sun City Center on Nov. 8 is considered a coup for the local chamber after North’s publisher contacted it last week.

SUN CITY CENTER — Oliver North is set to appear in November at the Sun City Center Community Hall to promote his new book, Heroes Proved: A Novel.

Online autographed-books seller Premier Collectibles contacted the Sun City Center Chamber of Commerce last week to arrange the book-signing appearance. The chamber suggested early November to coincide with its business expo.

"It's phenomenal for us," chamber executive director Dana Dittmar said. "We are a small resort community of less than 30,000 people, and for a town of this size to attract someone of his national stature is amazing."

Book signings usually occur at bookstores. In this case, the seller liked that Sun City Center is a 55+ community with many retired military, Dittmar said. About 500 copies will be available. The book sells for $32, according to Premier Collectibles' website.

The retired Marine lieutenant colonel and current host of the Fox News Channel program War Stories With Oliver North will sign books from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 8. The community hall is at 1910 S Pebble Beach Blvd.
