Women of the Greatest Generation: Stories of Faith, Hope, Love, and Courage @ Morrill Memorial Library, Simoni Room | Norwood | Massachusetts | United States

Come to the Morrill Memorial Library on Monday, November 6 at 7 p.m. to hear the Just Peace Players tell the stories, in their own words, of women who lived through World War II. This 50-minute play—“Women of the Greatest Generation: Stories of Faith, Hope, Love, and Courage”—recounts the experiences of combat nurses, teenage plane spotters, black marketeers, USO dancers, refugees, war brides, children in Nazi Germany and Japan, and the mothers, grandmothers, sisters, fiancees and girlfriends, among others, who kept the home fires burning during the war.

The Just Peace Players is a liturgical drama troupe committed to sharing their visions of peace and justice in innovative ways. This project was created by the Rev. Dr. Fran Bogle and the Rev. Nancy Reed to record and share the true stories of women who lived through this critical time in history and to help people discover their own resources of faith, hope, love, and courage. Everyone is invited to stay after the performance and share their own stories.

To sign up for this event, made possible through the library Endowment Fund, please call 781-769-0200, x110, fill out the form below, or stop by either the library Reference or Information Desk.
