East Texas Author Publishes Uncommon Memoir
Avinger, 7/30/2017: In its first month of release, Roger Geiger’s book, ‘Face The Bear,’ has been well received throughout Texas, the North East and Canada. Geiger says “I’m encouraged by the number of people who have already read the book. The story captures readers. Several have consumed all 336 pages in one day.”
Roger started a series of book signing events on July 20 with a stop in Wylie, TX, where he lived for many years. On July 27, he signed books in Forney, TX. More stops in Dallas and towns near his Avinger home are planned but not yet scheduled.
Face The Bear is the narrative of Geiger’s transition from sheltered childhood through the bizarre realities of adult life. He starts his journey of discovery with his first independent adventure at age twelve. From there Roger leads us around the world to confront extreme circumstance with a spirit of mischief. When too much death sends him to the depths of depression, Roger must find a way to climb back to living. “Think high adventure meets great tragedy,” Geiger says. “The phrase face the bear became a metaphor meaning we should address problems directly with decisive action.” These true tales encompass more commotion than seems rational, but it’s the confusion of life that spawns stories worth telling. A story untold is only a memory.
