Beyond the Homefront: The Untold Stories of WWII Heroes

May 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Renowned author Charley Valera, known for My Father’s War: Memories from Our Honored WWII Soldiers, delves into the long untold stories of WWII veterans. Drawing inspiration from his father, a WWII veteran who seldom discussed the war, Valera embarked on interviews with other veterans. Join him as he shares captivating photos and first-hand narratives spanning both theaters and all branches of WWII, complemented by an exclusive four-minute film trailer.

This program accompanies Voices and Votes: Democracy in America opening at the Cape Coral Lee County Public Library on September 14, 2024.
