Keeping The Lights On For Ike
“I remember my dad as a funny, smart, and cheerful fellow…[he] never talked much about the war, but he did let me put on his uniform jacket.”
Postponed until Spring 2021: Groton Senior Center, Groton, CT and Taft Public Library, Mendon, MA
In this one-hour event, Rebecca explains how Keeping the Lights on for Ike came about. She will begin with a brief timeline of major events to set the context for Alec’s letters. She will then read a section from the book, followed by questions from and discussion with the audience.

“Rebecca Daniels provides uncommon insight into World War II, sharing a personal perspective on history by examining her own father’s letters home during wartime. There are a few things that lend extra intrigue to the war correspondence, including the fact that her father was a non-combat support soldier, and also that he was responsible for censoring sensitive material from the correspondence of fellow soldiers. Rebecca has a good understanding of the history, plus a personal connection and the theatrical experience to make the presentation a crowd-pleaser.”
