Mollie's War presented by Cyndee Schaffer
Tuesday, November 1st at 6:30 PM
Why did an average American woman become a
WAC (Women’s Army Corps) during World War II
and place herself in peril?

Authors Cyndee Schaffer and Mollie Weinstein Schaffer,
answer this question and more in the book, Mollie’s War,
a story woven around the collection of letters that Mollie
wrote home to her family during WWII along with historical
commentary concurrent with the letters.
It took many letters home, sharing everything from daily
challenges to exciting experiences (when the censors allowed)
for her story, Mollie’s War to emerge.  Mollie’s story documents
the human side of life during the war- a life that alternates
between fear, romance, exhaustion, and leisure.
Mollie’s daughter, Cyndee Schaffer, will be at Bridgeview Public Library
on November 1st at 6:30PM to share her mother’s story.

Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness
- Susannah Cahalan

At first, there's just darkness and silence.

"Are my eyes open? Hello?"

I can't tell if I'm moving my mouth or if there's even anyone to ask. It's too dark to see. I blink once, twice, three times. There is a dull foreboding in the pit of my stomach. That, I recognize. My thoughts translate only slowly into language, as if emerging from a pot of molasses. Word by word the questions come: Where am I? Why does my scalp itch? Where is everyone? Then the world around me comes gradually into view, beginning as a pinhole, its diameter steadily expanding. Objects emerge from the murk and sharpen into focus.

I know immediately that I need to get out of here.
