[VIRTUAL] Author Talk: Free Author Talk with Elizabeth L. Fox

Date: October 16, 2020
Time: 11:00 am

Elizabeth and her husband Sid Fox will share a 20-minute dramatic reading of her book, WE ARE GOING TO BE LUCKY - A WORLD WAR II LOVE STORY IN LETTERS published by State University of New York in 2018.

"The book is based on excerpts from 2,000 letters written between my parents during World War II. My dad trained in Mississippi for the infantry, fought in Europe, and recovered from injuries in the Battle of the Bulge. A historian by training, he managed to save and send home my mom's letters from her time working at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, building periscopes, her experience both pregnant and as a new mom not knowing if her husband would return. The result is a conversation addressing a wide variety of political, social, and economic topics, as well as a deep love story."
