An Evening with Nancy Lynch, author of Vietnam Mailbag

The author will read letters from servicemen who served in Vietnam from 1968-1972.

During the peak years of the Vietnam War, a young reporter, Nancy Lynch, relayed the hopes and fears, the joys and tears of hundreds of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines from the state of Delaware through the “Vietnam Mailbag” column she wrote in the Wilmington Morning News. Nancy kept all those letters, and the pictures sent with many of them, neatly folded in their original envelopes.

Now, 40 years after she began writing her column, Nancy has written this richly illustrated book, giving a new generation a fresh look at the first-person accounts of troops in the combat zone. Books will be available for purchase.

We hope to see you there!
