I heard today that my presentation, “The Journey to Mollie’s War: WACs and WWII” has been selected to be included on the Illinois Humanities Bicentennial edition of its Road Scholars Speakers Bureau roster. In addition to sharing my mother’s story about her service in WWII, I will also talk about how my mother embraced Chicago (she was from Detroit, MI) and made it her home town! This is a picture of Grandma Mollie with her grandson (our son Jordan Schwartz) in the late 1980’s. What could be more Chicago?????
