On November 20th, Lois Herr, author of “Dear Coach: Letters Home from WWII” will be stopping by to answer some of your questions. As my readers know, I happen to have an avid interest in the WWII, on the battlefield, as well as the home front. I’m helping out with getting the word out about Herr’s new book, by involving myself in a virtual book tour. It should be noted that I’m not being compensated in any way for my involvement. I’m doing this just because I like the idea, and want to support a great project.
A collection of not only letters but historical facts, pictures and vivid commentary, “Dear Coach” features letters from WWII that were sent to Lois’s father, the famous Elizabethtown College coach Ira Herr, by various students, friends and family members who once played for the coach. The book gives an inside look at not only the impact of war to a small college community, but that of multiple heartfelt player and coach relationships.
