SUBMITTED by Marcia Marsille, Village Bookmarket (22-Feb-2011)

On Saturday, March 19, 1 PM-3 PM, Peter Evans, Wayne County Historian, will speak at Village Bookmarket, 207 East Main Street, Palmyra, NY, for a Macedon / Palmyra / Walworth "Our BIG Read" event.

The book chosen for this year's "Our BIG Read" is "The Things They Carried" by Tim O'Brien. It is a semiautobiographical account of "...a young platoon on a battlefield without a front, dodging sniper fire and their own misgivings...".

Peter is a Viet Nam era veteran who spent his tour in Korea ’66-’67. He was a Company Commander in the 2nd Infantry Division there and wrote a number of letters of condolences to the families of Soldiers killed in Viet Nam as well as to families of soldiers that served under him in Korea. In the 13 months Peter was there, the 2nd Infantry lost over 50 men.

Our BIG Read is a collaborative effort of Books, Etc., Macedon, Historic Palmyra, the public libraries of Macedon, Palmyra, and Walworth, and Village Bookmarket.
