This Pennsylvania history sounds like a WWII spy story!

Here is history at its best…the seamless blending of Pennsylvania Railroad history and intrigue during WWII–and a Nazi plot you won’t believe. At the book talk on Wednesday night in the Winsor Room, a packed house listened to author Dennis McIlnay tell the true story of the Nazi plot to blow up the world famous Horseshoe Curve. Like McIlnay says…you can’t make this stuff up!

In case you missed this event, be sure to type your email address in the column on the right so you’ll receive emails about all upcoming events in the Winsor Room. It’s that easy!

This is just one of the great events presented by the Library in partnership with Radnor Historical Society.

The Library owns 2 copies of The Horseshoe Curve: Sabotage and Subversion in the Railroad Citycall or visit us to get your copy. After watching the podcast, you’ll want to read this unbelievable true story. The Library also has a copy of McIlnay’s newest book, The Wreck of the Red Arrow. More intrigue, I am sure.

Dennis very kindly donated a copy of both books to Radnor Memorial Library!
