Nancy Lynch, author of Vietnam Mailbag, to speak Thurs, Oct 30, 6:30 PM

Nancy Lynch, author of Vietnam Mailbag, will speak at the Library on Thursday, October 30th at 6:30 PM. Nancy will read letters from servicemen who served in Vietnam. Vietnam vet, Rick Lovekin, will join Nancy and discuss his experiences in Vietnam.
From the early 1960s through March 1973 hundreds of thousands of men and women served in Vietnam.  During the peak years of that conflict, from May 1968 through December 1972, a young reporter, Nancy E. Lynch, relayed the hopes and fears, the joy and tears of hundreds of soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines from Delaware through the Vietnam Mailbag column she wrote in the Wilmington Morning News.
Nancy kept all those letters, and the pictures sent with many of them. Now, 40 years after she began writing her column, Nancy has written Vietnam Mailbag: Voices From the War, 1968-1972, giving a new generation a fresh look at the first-person accounts of troops in the combat zone.
