“Margaret’s War”: A Book Discussion with Author, Bill Stokes at Manitowoc Public Library
Set near the end of WW II when home-front America suddenly came face-to-face with the enemy that had been killing their sons and loved ones on foreign soil for years, Margaret’s War explores the largely-ignored topic of America’s POW camps. It tells the story of a young woman’s broken heart, trampled soul, and fragile sanity as German POWs are unexpectedly brought to her small Midwest town to help with the crop harvest. Bill Stokes lives in Mazomanie, Wisconsin, retired after a 35-year career as a columnist/feature writer for the Chicago Tribune, the Wisconsin State Journal, the Milwaukee Journal and the Stevens Point Daily Journal. He has authored a half-dozen other books, some of them compilations of his popular columns and stories. He will be coming to MPL’s Balkansky Community Room at 6 PM on September 4 to talk about Margaret’s War. Admission is FREE!!!
