Book Discussion: Till the Boys Come Home by Bill Pezza
Local author Bill Pezza joins us at 6:30 pm on Thursday, August 6th for a virtual discussion of his newest book, Till the Boys Come Home via ZOOM.
A prequel to the popular Anna's Boys, Till the Boys Come Home is set in Bristol in the 1940's. Jack Francelli and his girlfriend, Annie Gemello, graduate from Bristol High School in 1941, six months before Pearl Harbor. Both become consumed by the war effort, Jack as a member of the 82nd Airborne fighting in Sicily, Anzio and Normandy, and Annie on the home front as an employee at the Kaiser-Fleetwing aircraft plant and an advocate for Blue Star families and veterans. She faces the war on the home front with the same vigor as Jack does on the battlefield. There's plenty of local color as the characters frequent cherished Bristol landmarks from the past. It's a story of love and separation, sacrifice and reward, a celebration of the human spirit that will leave you cheering for the spunk and loyalty of the characters and the small town that nurtured them.
Registered participants will be emailed a ZOOM link 1 hour before the start of the program.
