Book Fair Fun and Give-Away Information

The book fair begins on Sunday, July 21, 2013 and there will again be prizes given away.

We are doing the prizes differently.  Instead of signing up for prizes via Rafflecopter, the participants will need to download the catalog that will be available at Black Lilac Kitty Book Promotion (http://www.blacklilackitty.com) on Sunday and read through/look through the catalog to see how to enter for prize drawings, find book promotion specials, etc.

We thought that many people look for the Rafflecopter sign-up and ignore the purpose of the fair, which is to promote authors and their works.  So, in order to participate in the give-aways, you must at least flip through the catalog.  And hopefully, something in the catalog will catach your eye.

Prizes include:

Books

Gift Cards

Specials on Book Promotion

And other stuff

Hope to see you around the “fair grounds”

Mollie’s War: The Letters of a World War II WAC in Europe

Mollies War

Mollie’s War: The Letters of a World War II WAC in Europe

by: Mollie Weinstein Schaffer and Cyndee Schaffer

Amazon’s Book Description:

“The 150,000 women who served in the Women’s Army Corps are now seen as the undersung heroes of the Second World War. This memoir describes the life of a WAC enlistee who would serve in England when it came under attack, France immediately after the Allied invasion, and Germany after VE Day. From her experience in basic training in Daytona Beach to the climactic moment when she saw the Statue of Liberty as her ship approached American shores upon her return home, this work provides a glimpse into the life of a woman in uniform during this crucial time in American history.”

“Excellent editing…a warmly human, accessible account…a historically vital representation of the role played by the 20,000 WACs sent overseas in World War II.” –Midwest Book Review

“The letters provide a fascinating description of Mollie’s experiences stateside and abroad in Europe. We also get an excellent picture of what life was like for a woman in the military.” –National Museum of American Jewish Military.

Mollie Weinstein Schaffer passed away on April 8, 2012.

I do not know whether or not Mollie ever took one of the Honor Flights to Washington, D. C. to see the WWII Memorial.

If you know a WWII veteran, a Korean War veteran, or a Vietnam Veteran, please tell them about the “Honor Flight Network” (http://www.honorflight.org/).

From the Honor Flight Network home page:

“Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.

“Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation—and as a culturally diverse, free society. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, an estimated 640 WWII veterans die each day. Our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.”

Visit the Honor Flight Network web site to find a “Regional Hub” in your state.  And please, encourage the veterans you know to participate.  This is a very moving experience for the veterans and their guardian companions.
