Cyndee speaking about Mollie's War

Award-winning local author, Cyndee Schaffer, will be speak at the North Shore Senior Center Men's Club on Tuesday, May 1st at 10:30 AM at the Northfield location, 161 Northfield Road, Northfield, Illinois 60093. The event is free and open to the public.
Cyndee will discuss her book, "Mollie's War," which she co-authored with her mother, Mollie Weinstein Schaffer. "Mollie's War" is a memoir that describes the life of a WAC who followed the troops into England, France and finally Germany with the Army of Occupation. Cyndee takes you on the romantic and always frightful journey of Jewish American WAC during the height of WWII. Using Mollie's letters written home, she provides a glimpse into the life of a woman in uniform during this crucial time, vividly depicting Mollie's experiences from her first train trip to Daytona Beach, Florida in October 1943 for basic training to the dramatic picture of seeing the Statue of Liberty as her ship approached the shores of the USA in November 1945.
Cyndee discusses the writing adventure from inspiration to publication. For more information, please visit Cyndee's website:
