The most exciting invitation to speak has recently been issued by the Pritzker Military Library in Chicago, Illinois. I will present readings from my book Destination Unknown, Adventures of a WWII American Red Cross Girl, at the Pritzker on April 26th.
Here’s how the Library is described on it’s website: “The Pritzker Military Library is a non-partisan research library that attempts to increase the public understanding of military history and the sacrifices made by the men and women who have served. Since opening in 2003, the Library has hosted over 300 events featuring the country’s most acclaimed authors, historians, journalists, and scholars.”
Not only am I thrilled and deeply honored to have been invited to speak at the Pritzker Military Library, I am thrilled and honored for my mother, whose story I tell. In my mother’s lifetime her picture and story became part of the permanent collection of the Women In Military Service for America Memorial in Arlington National Cemetery (http://www.womensmemorial.org). She was so proud to have been included in the Memorial; I just wish she was alive to hear herself spoken about at the Pritzker Military Library. She’d be over the moon!
Reservations are available for my April 26th presentation on the Pritzker Military Library website.
I’ll be signing books after the talk and would love to welcome friends to visit the Library and be in the audience!
