Two Authors, Film Crew Create Excitement

2 Authors, Film Crew Create Excitement

Wednesday, July 25, 2007

There will be lots of excitement between 1 and 4 p.m. Saturday at White's Harley-Davidson Buell, Lebanon, where guests will include the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club, two authors and a film crew for a new TV reality show, "Living on the Edge."

The club will be at White's to attend a book signing by Dennis Fritz, author of "Journey Toward Justice," and Edward Winterhalder, author of "Out in Bad Standings: Inside the Bandidos Motorcycle Club."

Fritz's book chronicles his story of being imprisoned 12 years as co-conspirator in a 1982 Oklahoma murder he did not commit and being freed in 1999 through DNA testing. The story of Ron Williamson, wrongly accused in the same rape and murder, is the subject of John Grisham's first nonfiction book, "The Innocent Man." (Movie rights have been reportedly sold to George Clooney, with production scheduled to begin next year.)

Winterhalder, who had been a leader in the Bandidos until 2003, is executive producer of "Living on the Edge," and the concept grew out of his book. They are filming the pilot themselves, having turned down several offers from the producer of "American Choppers," and plan to auction it to TV networks in the U.S. and abroad, Winterhalder said.

As part of the pilot episode, the TV crew will film the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club throughout the week, also in the Reading and Philadelphia areas.

The show features a corporate personality or celebrity who will be involved in the lives of motorcycle club members at their homes, jobs and communities. In this segment, Michael Crowe, a corporate executive of Johnson Controls, Milwaukee, will be the guest of the Vets Motorcycle club, according to Bruce "Fuzz" Terreson of Sinking Spring, state president of the club.

The public is invited to attend the event, and the authors' books will be available for purchase. Food and entertainment are planned.
