‘Combat Artist’ at Canio’s

At Canio’s Books in Sag Harbor

Alex Russo, who drew graphic accounts of combat firsthand during World War II, and who was a member of Navy intelligence involved in the Normandy invasion and other landings, will read from his memoir, “Combat Artist: A Journey of Love and War,” at Canio’s Books in Sag Harbor tomorrow at 5 p.m.

The book also explores the experiences of an artist making his way in postwar America. Mr. Russo went on to teach at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, D.C., and remains professor emeritus at Hood College in Frederick, Md. Also a poet, he lives in East Hampton.
