Dear Eva —

WarLettersTuesday November 4, 2014 at 7:00 pm.

BE TRANSPORTED BACK TO WWII  with a highlighted reading of the nonfiction play based on WWII letters written by Eva Lee Brown, her relatives and friends. The letters were discovered by Catherine Ladnier, her daughter.  She collaborated with Paul Janensch, Professor Emeritus of Journalism at Quinnipiac University. They selected the best of the letters, arranged them into story lines and edited them down to their essentials.  Some are from men facing the draft or in uniform in the middle of action. One is on a troopship sunk by the Germans. The women are dealing with shortages and missing their loved ones. The letters are candid, sad and funny, and all true. Registration required. Call 203-239-5803 or stop by the Reference Desk to sign up.
