Veterans Day at the Museum

November 11, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Join Susan P. Hunter, author of 77 Letters: Operation Morale Booster: Vietnam and director of the docuseries Take Me There: Vietnam, for a Veterans Day book signing and program honoring those who have served our country 

Not too long ago, Susan happened upon a treasure trove of letters in her mother’s attic dating back to the Vietnam War. This discovery of her mother’s wartime writing campaign led to a divine reunion with one of her GI pen pals and ultimately a jaw-dropping redemption between him and his daughter. Their story, depicted in Susan’s book, 77 Letters, Operation Morale Booster: Vietnam, garnered national attention having been written about in The New York Times and earning the Amazon #1 New Release recognition. It has since been adapted for the stage, premiering in Nashville in November. The overwhelming response of healing resulting from the book spawned into Susan traveling the country memorializing the experiences of those who intimately lived the war in Vietnam: military/civilian, American/Vietnamese, allies/ “then” enemies. Susan is producing a documentary series with the footage she has garnered from these interviews. Come and enjoy an engaging presentation on the discovery of this collection of letters and all that has transpired since.
