World History and Cultural Event Book Group

September 9, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


All are welcome to join this monthly discussion of books on current and historical world events and international culture.  This month’s book is: Love & War in the Apinnines by Eric Newby.  As a fugitive from a POW camp in Northern Italy in 1943, the author spent three months hiding out in the forests and mountains south of the river Po. This story recounts Newby’s experiences and the invaluable aid given by the local people, especially the woman who became his life-long love.  This book is out of print and the library is unable to obtain fresh editions however patrons can order pre-owned copies on  Amazon and Ebay.

This meeting will be held online.  Here is the link to access the meeting.
