Join Kansas City author Mark Armato in a discussion of his latest book, Grandpa’s War: The WWI Experiences of Corporal John George Rakers. Armato grew up hearing his grandfather tell stories of the Great War and became determined to preserve his memory. The result is a remarkable and moving tale of one man’s experience, with stories full of humor, sadness, rebellion, and faith.

No RSVP is required for this event. Books will be available for purchase before and after the discussion.
