WWI: Lessons and Legacies Exhibit


The WWI: Lessons and Legacies Exhibit examines how the Great War accelerated major changes already underway in the lives of Americans—changes that continue to impact our world today.  Eight posters along with thought-provoking questions will take you back into the time of the Great War.

Along with the exhibit, our book discussion group will be reading The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes.  The novel takes place in 1916 France where young Sophie's husband Edouard leaves to fight at the front.  We will meet to discuss the book on Thursday, January 2nd at 2PM in the library's Bell Art Room.

Scot Simpson, a Winona County Historical Society Volunteer Historian, will present "The War to End All Wars... or Not: A Brief Overview of the First World War" on Thursday, January 16th at 6 PM in the Bell Art Room.  Simpson will discuss the Great War and the implications after the war.
