Title: Keeping the Lights on For Ike - A Virtual Book Talk with Rebecca Daniels
Contact: Eileen Crosby, 4134208107
Location: Virtual, online event

Join us as Rebecca Daniels reads from and discusses the making of her new book, Keeping the Lights on for Ike: Daily Life of a Utilities Engineer at AFHQ in Europe During WWII; or, What to Say in Letters Home When You're Not Allowed to Write about the War.
Daniels's book, a memoir about her parents' courtship and marriage while her father was deployed in Algeria, Italy, and Europe, is based on her own extensive collection of family correspondence and photographs. A love story at its heart, the book is enriched by her meticulous research into personal correspondence during wartime and into the lives of support soldiers in WWII. Sponsored by the Holyoke History Room.
