misc_none 2:00 PM Heroes All Around Us: USS Slater @ CENTRAL Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Presenter: Bob Herbst

Heroes All Around Us:

This class explores the fascinating history of destroyer escorts, the USS SLATER and the lives of three men who served in the United States Navy during World War II and who are tied in some way to these trim but deadly warships. The first is Frank Slater, killed in action at Guadalcanal and for whom the USS SLATER is named. The second, Leonard Roy Harmon, coming from different circumstances but finding himself serving alongside Frank Slater aboard the USS SAN FRANCISCO, also lost his life and would receive the posthumous distinction of being the first African American to have a ship named in his honor. Finally, the remarkable story of a destroyer escort, the USS SAMUEL B ROBERTS will be examined, highlighting the actions of Paul Henry Carr.

Note: USS Slater displays in both cases arranged by Shanna Hopson, Collections Manager

We are not your typical book club. We meet each month at a different downtown bar for drinks, food and intelligent discussion of contemporary literature. A great book club for all ages (21 + that is...)

Our June discussion will be of the graphic novel Two Brothers by Fabio Moon. Twin brothers Omar and Yaqub may share the same features, but they could not be more different from one another. And the possessive love of their mother, Zana, stirs the troubled waters between them even more. After a brutally violent exchange between the young boys, Yaqub, “the good son,” is sent from his home in Brazil to live with relatives in Lebanon, only to return five years later as a virtual stranger to the parents who bore him, his tensions with Omar unchanged. Family secrets engage the reader in this profoundly resonant story about identity, love, loss, deception, and the dissolution of blood ties.

Location of discussion TBA. New readers are welcome to join us by registering below!

    Location: TBA
        There are 17 spaces available.
