Join Michele Weldon for the launch of her newest book.
Learn about World War I heroines from local author Kathryn Atwood. She'll share 70 archival photos, many of them included in her book, Women Heroes of World War I, and tell how women worldwide mobilized for the war effort in a variety of ways. In the process, these women became powerful symbols both in their government's propaganda efforts as well as the women's rights movements of their day. Atwood will define the concept of hero in both world wars while illustrating how some heroines of the World War I directly inspired those who participated in World War II.
Meet Mark Adams, author of the new book, "Meet me in Atlantis: My Obsessive Quest to Find the Sunken City." Adams, a former Oak Park resident, is also the author of the previous best-selling book, Turn Right at Machu Picchu.
