Author and professor Dale O. Cloninger proudly presents his book titled “The Ninth Passage”

Dale’s book will be exhibited and presented at the upcoming 2020 London Book Fair.


“‘The Ninth Passage’, while inspired by real events, is an interestingly relatable and enjoyable work of fiction.”

“The Ninth Passage” is the fictitious story of Alec Driver, a WWII veteran turned choir teacher, who begins a romantic relationship with a student and how it tears the community apart.
While attending his fortieth class reunion, Dean Collins recounts the story of Alec Driver, a WWII veteran, who uses the GI bill to earn an advanced degree in music from a prestigious university. At age thirty-seven, with glowing recommendations in hand, Alec secures the post of choir teacher at a small town high school on Florida’s west coast. Soon after assuming his duties he falls in love with Tracy Ashbury a bright, talented and attractive student in his choir. Community outrage aroused by his courtship culminates in a resentful and belligerent student goading Alec into striking him. Influential citizens rescue Alec from potential dismissal. His subsequent marriage to Tracy and national recognition for the choir’s mastery vindicates Alec’s supporters or so it seems.
