Home Front to Battlefront: An Ohio Teenager in World War II, by Frank Lavin
Miller Nichols Charitable Foundation Speaker Series
Thursday, June 15 | 12:00 p.m. | Visitors Center Auditorium
The author's father, Carl Lavin, was a high school senior when Pearl Harbor was attacked. The Canton, Ohio, native enlisted when he turned eighteen, a decision that would take him to the Battle of the Bulge. The book is based on Carl's personal letters, his recollections, and those of the people he served beside, official military history, private papers, and more. Lavin's adventures, in turn disarming and sobering, will appeal to general readers, veterans, educators, and students of the war.
A light lunch will be provided. RSVP by email or call 785-263-6771. RSVPs are not required, but appreciated.
