    March 30, 2019, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Community Room

    Local author and historian Brian Welke will guide this interesting lecture and discussion.

Also, watching a fellow POW starve to death while another was marched off to be executed. Many know of Kurt Vonnegut’s life after WWII but the presentation will tell you of Vonnegut’s background before the war. Also, learn who many of the main characters are and about the men who served with him. No registration is required. Refreshments served. Sponsored by the Mount Dora Library Association.
