Jack Hawn’s “Insomnia: Two Wives, Childhood Memories and Crazy Dreams” will be displayed at the Los Angeles Times Festival of books on April 23-24, 2022, at the University of Southern California campus, Los Angeles, CA.

This book tells about the author’s battle with insomnia. The story started many years ago; when he first met Charlene, the love of his life, she dominated his thoughts deep into the night and early morning hours.

After seven years, the author still grieved, missing his dear Charlene. Insomnia can be dreadful and incurable in some cases, which he has experienced.

Married for sixty-three years, Charlene left him looking as beautiful as the day she stepped into Jack’s life on her way home from high school to say hello to Onalee, her next-door girlfriend.

Wearing his Army uniform on his first military pass, Jack knew he had to see more of this beautiful girl, but Charlene made it clear that wouldn’t happen.

This book explains how a person can have insomnia and how hard it is to experience it. Having trouble sleeping can disrupt a person’s lifestyle. Insomnia, the book, is Jack’s journey into yesteryear.
