January 15, 2013, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ The Aigler Auditorium (3rd Floor)
Carnegie-Stout Public Library’s bi-monthly book discussion group for adults will meet at 7:00 p.m. in the 3rd Floor Aigler Auditorium on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 where the book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand will be discussed. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane’s bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary odysseys of the Second World War.
Copies of the book are available at the Circulation Desk. The public is cordially invited to attend. For more information, please call the Carnegie-Stout Public Library at 563-589-4225, or visit the Library’s website, www.dubuque.lib.ia.us.
