The Big Read: Veterans' Stories

Thursday, March 6, 2014  
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Dr. Todd DePastino knows how to tell a good story. As an award-winning historian, that’s his job. But for the past three years, he's been focused on listening. And the stories he's heard—some beautiful and heartbreaking, others gut-wrenching—are largely about war. Todd is co-founder and director of the Veterans Breakfast Club, a nonprofit organization dedicated to gathering veterans of all eras and generations together to share their stories of service. Todd will tell extraordinary WWII stories of veterans living in the region and his quest to preserve and celebrate them.
