Ike Book TALK: "Our Mothers' War" by Emily Yellin

Tuesday, July 9, 2019

A stunning and unprecedented portrait of women during World War II, a war that forever transformed the way women participate in American society. "Our Mothers' War" re-creates what American women from all walks of life were doing and thinking, on the home front and abroad. The 2019 Ike Book TALK series is marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day by exploring some of the lesser known stories of World War II. Talk About Literature in Kansas (TALK) is presented by Humanities Kansas in partnership with the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and the Abilene Public Library. The TALK program is for every Kansan who loves to read and discuss good books. Books in the series can be checked out of the Abilene Public Library and are also available for purchase at the Eisenhower Presidential Library gift shop. The programs are free and open to the public, and registration is not required.
