Virtual Author Series: Dr. Rebecca Faber

Thursday, November 4, 2021 - 7:00pm

We are excited to welcome Dr. Rebecca Faber to talk about her book, One Small Photo, a collection of poetry and one short story that was written to raise awareness about veterans' mental health. Dr. Faber will also share details about a new research project focused on her uncle, who was a prisoner of war in Germany during World War II. This event is perfect for anyone interested in military history as well as veterans' issues. Watch Dr. Faber read her poetry here.

You can purchase a copy of One Small Photo from our online bookstore HERE.
