Author of The Mathews Men: Seven Brothers and the War Against Hitler's U-Boats
Talk & Booksigning
Sunday, March 26, 2017, 3:00 PM
On March 26, Author and Journalist William Geroux makes an appearance aboard the Liberty ship SS JEREMIAH O'BRIEN to talk about his latest work, Mathews Men: Seven Brothers and the War Against Hitler's U-Boats.
"Journalist Geroux combines the skills of a newsman and those of a scholar to tell the story of the vital and heroic role played by the U.S. Merchant Marines during WWII. These civilian sailors delivered hundreds of millions of tons of cargo across the globe during the war, on vulnerable, often-unescorted ships, and their actions are largely overlooked in histories of the war." -Publishers Weekly
The talk by Mr. Geroux will begin at 3:00pm on Sunday, March 26, 2017 followed by a Q&A session and booksigning.
