World War II Massachusetts Book Talk

Join the Old Colony History Museum in commemorating the renovated Military Room by delving into the experiences of WWII home front life across various Old Colony towns and cities, including Camp Myles Standish.

During World War II, over 500,000 Massachusetts residents heeded the call to military duty, leaving the remainder of the state's populace to support the war effort from home. Every member of the family, including pets, found innovative and crucial ways to contribute.

In his latest publication, retired third-grade teacher James L. Parr unveils the narratives of these courageous and committed individuals – from renowned figures to ordinary citizens – as they confronted the challenges of wartime.

This presentation is complimentary thanks to the generosity of OCHM corporate sponsors. Doors will open at 5:30 pm, providing guests an opportunity to enjoy refreshments and engage with fellow attendees before the lecture. A book signing will follow, with books available for purchase at $24.99.

Suitable for ages 10 and above! RSVPs are necessary. Please refer to the provided link for reservations. For further details, contact 508-822-1622 or email
