Friday Luncheon Series
November 22 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm$25
Please join us on November 22, 2019 at Maggiano’s Little Italy for the second Luncheon Speaker Series of fall 2019. We will welcome guest speaker, and MHSM grant recipient, Jim Kurtz, who will give a presentation on the story behind his book, The Green Box, and the accompanying documentary film project. The Green Box traces Jim’s
exploration of his father’s experiences as a WWII aviator and POW. This event will be a joint meeting with the 76 Club of Boston.
From the Author’s Note of The Green Box
“The Green Box is the culmination of the search for the details of my father’s life. The search itself became a story that demanded to be told.
The book blends literary forms: it is part memoir, part biography, and part informed speculation as to my father’s experiences and emotions. He spoke little about his trials, and only hinted at them in letters and essays. The Green Box moves Between past and present, as I weave together Interviews with people who knew my father, and
Accounts of soldiers who endured the same challenges that he did, along with my own imagined Scenarios.”
