Separated by a world and a war, their bond grew stronger with every sweetheart letter. Author and documentary film producer, Kara Martinelli, tells the story of a World War II veteran close to her heart—her grandfather. To ensure that his love for Anna will never be forgotten, Martinelli has joined together the letters her grandparents exchanged during WWII with the stories he told over many years. Through some of the worst of times, he was always determined to return to her. From Air Corps training to the fight in the Pacific, this unique memoir follows a young man’s heroic struggle with family, history, love and war. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
