Deschutes Public Library Series: Know WWII: The Elliott Love Letters: WWII on a Personal Stage

In the months preceding D-Day (June 6, 1944), Frank and Pauline Elliott exchanged a series of poignant love letters. Frank, just 23 years old, had left Georgetown University to enlist with the Army in 1943. He left behind his wife, Pauline, and their daughter, DeRonda, in New Castle, Pennsylvania. Frank died in the D-Day invasion. Explore the love letters with Community Librarian Nate Pedersen and special guest readers. Bring your own love letters or poems to share during the open mic.
