Books: "Captured by the Russians"

Listen to this story
St. Lawrence University alum Charles Burrall returns to campus to sign copies of his book, Captured by the Russians -- A True Story on Saturday. Burrall told Todd Moe that today he lives a relatively quiet life as a school teacher in Maryland. But it wasn't always so. In 1984, he was a crew member on a small ship off the coast of Alaska that was seized by the Soviet Union. Burrall told Todd about his eight-day confinement, relations with his captors and how faith helped play a part in his eventual release. He'll sign copies of his book Saturday, 2-4 pm at the Brewer Bookstore in Canton.
