Margaret's War

Thursday, September 19, 2019

Award winning reporter, and Wisconsin native, Bill Stokes will speak about his novel Margaret’s War. The book tells the story of an isolated small town where Billy and Margaret live which is suddenly thrust into the brutal reality of World War II when German POWs are brought in to help with crop harvesting. The face-to-face contact with the killers of their sons is not only beyond the capacities of Gold Star mothers, but twists the thinking of everyone, including Margaret, who is determined to challenge fate.
