Those Who Serve Speak
As part of their new publication, Those Who Serve: Martha’s Vineyard and World War II, the Martha’s Vineyard Museum is hosting a book signing and reading on Saturday, May 14 at 3 p.m. Readers will include veterans Hector Asselin, Mev Good, Ted Morgan, Tom Hale and Nelson Smith whose oral histories appear in the book recorded by the museum’s oral history curator, Linsey Lee.
The book contains nineteen narratives along with contemporary and archival photographs. The publication is a companion piece to the popular exhibition of the same name that presented Vineyarders’ experiences on the home front and overseas during World War II. The exhibit has since closed but can be viewed later this summer online at mvmuseum.org.
Admission to the reading is free to museum members and $7 for nonmembers. Books will be available for purchase.
