I just saw in the Military Writers Society of America facebook page that my book, “Mollie’s War” won third place in the Stars and Flag Book Award contest in Branson, MO.   I am very honored that my book placed among the books of so many distinguished writers

This has been a great Veterans Day, telling my mother’s story and honoring Veterans at three different locations. It was wonderful speaking at two senior living facilities and watching all of the WWII Veterans being honored, including my mother. Then speaking at Temple in the evening with Fred Rosenberg was such an emotional feeling.
Now I will be speaking again on Monday, November 14th at the Lincolnwood Social Club, 6900 N. Lincoln, Lincolnwood at 10 AM. Come join me as I speak about “Mollie’s War.”

My mother, Mollie Weinstein Schaffer and I attended a wonderful event Monday evening at the Chicago History Museum for Jeremy Bloom’s Wish of a Lifetime Foundation sponsored by Brookdale Senior Living.   My mother was one of four WWII Veterans honored for their military service during WWII.

My mother and I are so excited.   Our book, “Mollie’s War: The Letters of a World War II WAC in Europe” has just been named a finalist in the Chicago Writers Association’s first Books of the Year Award for traditional published, non-fiction.
