"THROUGH MY MOTHER'S EYES" BOOK SIGNING - DECEMBER 18
Jean-Marie Faggiano was just a little girl living with her family in the Philippines when Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 7, 1941. Like thousands of other American and British families, Jean-Marie and her family were forced to surrender to the Imperial Japanese Army and live as civilian prisoners of war in the Philippines from January 1942 until February 1945.
Through My Mother’s Eyes is the true story of a young girl and her family, held captive against their wishes and thrown into a world where starvation, sickness, torture, and death were a commonplace occurrence. Michael, her eldest son, now tells that story in a book that gives a shocking and compelling view into the life of a family faced with tremendous crisis, counteracted by heroism, courage, love, and resilience.
Join the Tudor Rose from 4pm to 6pm for a high tea of scones with jam and cream, tea sandwiches, a signature cookie and an endless pot of tea. The $35.00 admission also includes a talk by Jean-Marie about her experience as a child POW during WWII, followed by a book signing with Jean-Marie and her son, author Michael McCoy.
A portion of your admission benefits Sonoma County VetConnect.
Reserve your space for this special event below. We look forward to seeing you on December 18th!
"Admirable courage in the midst of war. If you're a lover of history, stories of tragedies and triumphs, this is a must-read book."
