AUTHOR TALK & BOOK SIGNING
L.M. Elliott
Monday, April 21*
Grades 6 & up
*Off site school event. Classes and individuals are invited to attend; please call for details.

Join award-winning historical fiction author L.M. Elliott for a talk about her works and the extensive research that goes along with the writing. In her new book, the gripping and meticulously-researched Across a War-Tossed Sea, she brings a rarely told story of World War II on U.S. soil to light. It's 1943, and World War II is raging. To escape the terror of the Blitz, ten-year-old Wesley and fourteen-year-old Charles were evacuated from England to America. After a few near misses with German U-boats and a treacherous ocean crossing, the brothers arrived in Virginia. Just when Wes and Charles think they are safe from the terror of the battles raging thousands of miles across the sea, they encounter the very brand of soldiers they were trying to escape: Nazis, from a POW camp right around the corner and U-boats torpedoing American ships off the nearby Atlantic coastline.

Available for signing:

  • Across a War-Tossed Sea  $16.99
  • Under a War-Torn Sky  $6.99p
  • Annie Between the States  $9.99p
