A War Story

Wednesday, August 24, 2016 | Permalink

There are so many interesting books and stories about World War II that sometimes it is difficult to decide which ones to read.  Of course, there were the books written at the time, and certainly Winston Churchill's come to mind first.  Since the end of WWII, so many writers have chosen the war as their subject to write both fiction and non fiction.  Many are very well done. Some are fiercely accurate accounts, and some are stories, written more for entertainment than accuracy, but still enjoyable.  

Our September author Meg Waite Clayton has managed to tell an incredibly entertaining story, while through intensive research, keeping to the facts in a most dedicated manner.  Her story of the women journalists who went through hell to get to where the story was, is a fantastic read as well as a seldom told story.  

Please join us and hear the rest of the story when she and Donna Apidone appear "in conversation" in our Community Room.  Make your reservations early. We will serve our usual lovely appetizers and wine, Tuesday, September 13 at 6 pm. 

Cheers!
