World War II We Never Knew: North Country libraries host WW II events

More than 70 years after World War II ended, stories from the frontlines and the home front of the most devastating world conflict of all time continue to be told through books, film, and oral histories. This fall, Berlin Public Library, White Mountains Community College Fortier Library, and Gorham Public Library are collaborating on a series that explores World War II. Supported by a $1,000 Community Project Grant from NH Humanities, the series continues this month with these events held on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm at the White Mountain Community College - Berlin, Fortier Library.

Books are available for borrowing at the participating libraries. Each event in the series stands alone so participants can attend one, two, or all three.

October 4: Suzanne H. Brown leads a book discussion of Soldier from the War Returning: Troubled Homecoming Not in News.

October 25: John Gfroerer shows and leads discussion about his documentary film, World War II NH.

November 8: Marina Kirsch tells her family’s story based on her book, Flight of Remembrance: World War II from the Losing Side and the Dream that Led to Aerospace Engineering.
