The 2013 Agoura Hills' One City, One Book selection was announced by Mayor Denis Weber at Wednesday's city council meeting. It is Unbroken, the true tale of how a WWII lieutenant survives an ordeal after his plane crashes into the Pacific Ocean.
"I read the book about a year ago, and it effected me greatly," said Weber. "You can't believe anyone can go through something like this gentleman went through and come out [alive] to tell it."
The book has been on the New York Times bestseller's list for 115 weeks.
The story's hero, Louis Zamperini, who is now 96 years old, will be the guest speaker at a featured event to be held at the Regency Agoura Hills Stadium 8 on April 10.
