It's National Novel Writing Month at the Linwood Community Library! Over the course of November we will have English professor (KCKCC and formerly KU) and creative writer Tasha Haas lead writing workshops for all ages. You'll have creative support with Tasha to guide and the support of fellow writers as you work on your great novel.
Join us as author Ronda Hassig tells the WWII story of Edward Mack and the other US soldiers stationed in the Philippines during the war. These brave men and women gave the ultimate sacrifice for their countries.
Edward Mack had everything: a wife, a newborn son, and his dream job. But as a West Point graduate stationed in the Philippines, his life changed forever on December 7, 1941. Not long after, he would survive the Bataan Death March, Camps O'Donnell, and Cabanatuan. At Cabanatuan, he headed an underground operation to get food and medicine for his fellow prisoners. His final destination was Fukuoka, Japan, but first he was forced to endure the Hell Ships. In the end, only his ashes returned to his family in 1948. Then, in 2007, his son received a phone call: his father's West Point ring had been found in California.
We will have 3 sessions: 6:30 pm, 7:30 pm, and 8:30 pm.
