A Thousand Letters Home - IrishPlease join us on  Monday, June  17 at 6 pm, when the Civic Center Library hosts Teresa K. Irish,  editor of A Thousand Letters Home: One WWII Soldier’s Story of War, Love, and Life.

After her father died, Teresa K. Irish found packets of letters he wrote during his time in World War II. Her book is composed of selections from her Dad’s original letters placed into historical context with excerpts from the book 102d thru Germany (published by the division in 1945).

A Thousand Letters Home was named Reviewer’s Choice by Midwest Book Review, Small Press Bookwatch. The Military Writers Society of America placed it on their 2013 recommended reading list, calling it “a fascinating book” and “a treasure trove”.

Don’t miss your chance to meet Teresa K. Irish and hear the story of her father’s experiences in the 102nd Infantry Division during World War II. This event will take place in the Conference Room outside of the Civic Center Library. Books will be available to be purchased and signed at this event. To register, call 586.574.4564.
