Local Author Talk: Larry Lewis’ ‘Sadie’s Boys’
Glenville resident Larry Lewis will talk about his new book “Sadie’s Boys.”
From Larry: “On June 1, 1943, the B17E, Texas No.6 did not return from its reconnaissance mission over New Guinea. Navigator Charles Lewis was declared missing in action. On Dec. 3, 1944, Rifle Company I, 3rd Battalion, attacked the town of Lucherberg, Germany and 22 of those American GIs were taken prisoner. Charlie’s younger brother Ben was one of them. Sadie Lewis had tried everything to keep her boys Charlie and Ben from joining the fight in World War II. Once her sons were missing, she tried everything to get them back. ‘Sadie’s Boys’ tells the story, through letters and official documents, of two poor Jewish soldiers from Brooklyn who fought for their country and of the mother who fought for her sons.”
Bring your lunch if you are on lunch hour for the 12:15 p.m. start.
