    Contact: Reference Desk   630-924-2730   bdref@mybpl.org
   

On December 8th, 1941, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt stated: "Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan." The United States had now entered World War II. 

In commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor, historian Jim Gibbons will present the story of Pearl Harbor and how the United States was suddenly and deliberately surprise-attacked by Japanese Naval and Air Forces and then thrust from isolationism into World War II. Gibbons will show you the beginnings of the storms of war that led to the predawn attack. He will explain how our government in Washington and the people of the United States were wooed to vulnerability and then struck hard by the Empire of Japan. Finally, Gibbons will show you how the people of the United States, as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt stated, “In their righteous might [did] succeed to absolute victory!”

Besides the reading, there will be a Q&A where you’ll hear the fascinating story of the creation and cultural response to the work. Not only will you enjoy the story, you’ll also experience a modern recreation of a magic lantern slide show, like the ones popular during Charles Dickens’ life.
