Description:
 Author Larry Lewis will be speaking at the library about his book Sadie’s Boys.

On June 1, 1943, the B17E, Texas #6 did not return from its reconnaissance mission over New Guinea. Navigator Charles Lewis was declared missing in action. On December 3, 1944, Rifle Company I, 3rd Battalion, attacked the town of Lucherberg, Germany and twenty two of those American GIs were taken prisoner. Charlie’s younger brother Ben was one of them. Sadie Lewis had tried everything to keep her boys Charlie and Ben from joining the fight in World War 2. Once her sons were missing, she tried everything to get them back. “Sadie’s Boys” tells the story, through letters and official documents, of two poor Jewish soldiers from Brooklyn who fought for their country and of the mother who fought for her sons.

Printed copies of Sadie’s Boys will be available for sale.
