Lecture & Booksigning: Vietnam Mailbag: Voices from the War: 1968-1972 with Nancy Lynch
Nabb Gallery, 7 p.m.
From the early 1960s through March 1973, thousands of men and women served in Vietnam in an undeclared and highly controversial war. During that conflict, from May 1968 through
December 1972, a young reporter, Nancy E. Lynch, relayed the hopes and fears, the joy and the tears, of hundreds of soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines from Delaware through the Vietnam Mailbag column she wrote in the Wilmington Morning News. In Vietnam Mailbag: Voices From the War, 1968-1972, Nancy tells the story of troops at war through the letters they wrote to her a generation ago and through a series of moving interviews with veterans who share how the Vietnam experience shaped their lives. Copies of the book and DVD will be available for purchase.
