  • Sun., Mar. 24, 2 pm "A War in Letters" Two Stories of Iwo Jima:Author and historian Mary Beth Voda will present "A War in Letters," a unique program about the Battle of Iwo Jima. Voda tells the story of the battle using letters sent home to wives and families from two combatants – her father, U.S. Marine Pfc. Tom Kennedy and the Japanese commander of the island, Gen. T. Kuribayashi. Drawing on the personal letters of her parents, who were raised in Wilkes-Barre, and the published correspondence of Gen. Kuribayashi, Voda illustrates that although oceans apart in ideology and culture, these men shared a common love of family and sense of duty to country. Voda's work has been published in American History, Pennsylvania Heritage, Pennsylvania, Susquehanna Life, Happenings, Military Officer, WWII Chronicles and other publications. Join us for a fascinating look at both sides of World War II!
