The Friends of the Case Memorial Library invite you to help celebrate its 25th Anniversary. Each month you can look forward to an author talk or a musical program or a history or cultural program or a film series.
The celebration will begin on Saturday, January 21st at 1:00 in the library Meeting Room (snow date is January 28th). Wallingford author, Ida Green, will discuss her book, Bunty’s War. It is her intimate portrait of a schoolgirl who is growing up amidst the terror of World War II in London. The story juxtaposes on the same day between the events of the war and the ups and downs of her personal life.
After German bombers make her home uninhabitable, her family become refugees seeking asylum in North Wales where they will remain for two years. Upon returning to London, she spends a summer volunteering to bring in the harvest at a country farm and encounters American servicemen for the first time. While in college, she answers the call to National Service. She works in a government-controlled office where her life as a “career woman” includes many comical experiences.
Please join us as Bunty shares her intimate diary entries. Registration is required.
