When Books Went to War


by Molly Guptil Manning

 

Americans sent millions of books overseas in World War II to men and women in the Army, Air Force, Marines, and Navy.

The "paperback" format was virtually invented in WWII to provide a durable book that a fighting man could easily carry in his pocket or pack. The men and women who read---and re-read, over and over again---these books wrote thousands of letters to the authors to thank them for providing the joys of reading during the war.

 

Everyone is welcome to join a discussion of her book in the Natick Community-Senior Center.

 

Sponsored by the Natick Historical Society and the Bacon Free Library
