CANCELED | Discussion and Book Signing: Frank Lavin, “Home Front to Battlefront”
August 10 @ 7:00 pmFree
UPDATE: This event has been canceled.
World War II touched more lives than any single event in human history and it continues to shape the world of today. By looking at the journey of the GIs from that era, we can better understand the America of the 1940s and our journey of the past 70 years. Carl Lavin was a high school senior when Pearl Harbor was attacked. The Ohio native enlisted when he turned eighteen, a decision that would take him from Army training across the US and Britain to combat with the 84th Infantry Division in the Battle of the Bulge. Home Front to Battlefront is the tale of a foot soldier who finds himself thrust into a world where he and his unit grapple with the horrors of combat, the idiocies of bureaucracy, and the oddities of life back home—all in the same day.
