Radford Public Library presents a Radford Reads Program on Zoom with Author Ron Peterson, Jr. on Tuesday, May 4, 2021.

Virginia author and Radford University alum Ron Peterson, Jr. will be discussing his newest book, "Chasing the Squirrel", the true story of notorious drug smuggler Wally Thrasher, whose investigation led to the biggest drug bust in the U.S. Mid-Atlantic history in 1986.

Wally Thrasher grew up in Pulaski County and lived in a mountain estate near Virginia's New River Valley in Bland County. He owned oceanfront homes and yachts in Florida, spent weekends in the Caribbean and laundered money in Las Vegas, where he partied with Frank Sinatra's entourage.

Author Ron Peterson, Jr. attended Radford University and was a communications major and is the author of the book "Under the Trestle". He has been published in newspapers throughout the state and in internal publications for two Fortune 500 companies. His career includes work at the Virginian Pilot and Cox Media, where he earned the company's annual "Outstanding Performance" award.

Peterson's background also includes managing corporate television advertising campaigns on CNN, Fox News and ESPN. He is currently a board member of the Hampton Roads Sports Media Hall of Fame.



Admission is free and all are welcome.
