Vietnam Mailbag Book Talk

with Author Nancy Lynch

Tuesday, May 3

7:00-8:00 PM

*For Adults*

From the early 1960s through 1973, hundreds of thousands of American men and women served in Vietnam in an undeclared and highly controversial war. During its height Nancy Lynch, then a young reporter, corresponded with Delaware soldiers stationed in the war zone for a local newspaper column that aimed to bring hope and a human face to the war. To honor those who served, Lynch wrote a book entitled Vietnam Mailbag: Voices from the War, 1968-1972. Join us at the Mendon Public Library to talk with Nancy and hear her read some of those letters.
