An evening with Jennifer Chiaverini, author of Resistance Women
October 10, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-5
Madison author, Jennifer Chiaverini, tells the story of WI-native Mildred Fish Harnack, leader of a WWII underground resistance group.
Free and open to public, join Jennifer Chiaverini, author of RESISTANCE WOMEN, to discuss Wisconsin’s own Mildred Fish Harnack, a World War II heroine.
September 16 has been named Mildred Fish Harnack Day in Wisconsin, yet who was this woman who organized a group of ordinary people to lead an underground resistance movement?
With something for everyone from high school students to history buffs, Jennifer Chiaverini will be in conversation about her inspiration for this book and the true and unforgettable story of the group of women who were determined to resist the rise of evil, fight injustice, and defend the oppressed during WWII.
This is a free event, with free parking, open to the public, and is held at the Beaver Dam High School Library Media Center, 500 Gould Street, Beaver Dam, WI 53916.
