Cline signs Paul Banks book Saturday at Homer Bookstore

Dorothy “Dotty” Cline signs her new book, “Paul Banks: Alaskan Musical Man” from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Homer Bookstore. Banks was a custodian at East Elementary School for 17 years, writing and playing songs for students to perform. The school was renamed in his honor after he retired in 1981. Cline writes of Banks’ life, answering the question, “What did Paul Banks do that made people want to remember him?” The book also includes some of his music. Published by Glen Erin Press of Charleston, S.C., the book is available for sale at the Homer Bookstore.
