On Nov. 28, 1979, accomplished Navy pilot Peter Rodrick died when his plane crashed in the Indian Ocean, leaving behind a devastated wife, two daughters, and a 13-year-old son.

In “The Magical Stranger,” author Stephen Rodrick explores the life and death of the man who indelibly shaped his life, even as he remained a mystery.

Rodrick will present his book at 7 p.m. May 15 at the King County Library Service Center, 960 Newport Way.

A blend of memoir and reportage, the book is a reflection on the meaning of service and the power of a father’s legacy, according to a press release from the Issaquah Library.
