Honoring our Veterans: Three special programs
We will host three special programs this November to honor our veterans.
Veteran’s Pinhole Photography Project, November 10
This moving photography exhibit, titled To Bridge the Gap: Loss and Re-Creation of Identity, features the pinhole photography works of United States veterans. Organizer and artist Adam Ogden worked closely with veterans using the power of art as a means of emotional therapy. Ogden said the project has helped veterans regain their grasp on who they are and provides exercise for their hands, their eyes, and their mind. Please come support our veterans at this grand exhibit opening.
Blue Star Flag Program, November 12
In honor of our servicemen and women, Frank Roma from the City of Auburn will be at the library to talk about the Blue Star Flag Program. The City of Auburn has a special program to honor residents who are waiting for a loved one to return home from defending our nation’s freedom. Family members of servicemen and women who are currently deployed overseas in combat areas are invited to receive a Blue Star Flag to hang in their homes as a symbol of support from the entire city for their service. Please join us to find out more about this special program.
Author Visit: Dear Mom: Around the world with the Air Transport Command during WWII, November 16
Author Thomas Bennett presents a touching tribute as the Auburn Public Library continues to honor our veterans. Bennett will share his father’s letters to his mother and accompanying photographs in discussing his father’s circumnavigation of the globe as part of the U.S. Army Air Corp’s Air Transport Command during the WWII.
