Author Brings War Letters Project to Longview July 5


New York Times bestselling author and founding director of the Center for American War Letters at Chapman University makes an appearance July 5 at the First United Methodist Church Faith Center in Longview.

Andrew Carroll’s books include War Letters, Letters of a Nation, and Behind the Lines. War Letters inspired the critically acclaimed PBS documentary of the same name, and the audio version of the book was nominated for a Grammy in the “Spoken Word” category.

In 1998, Carroll founded the Legacy Project to honor veterans and active-duty troops by preserving their wartime correspondence. He’s traveled to all 50 states and more than 40 countries and has collected, to date, an estimated 100,000 letters from every war in U.S. history.

Guests are invited to bring their own war letters for consideration in preserving them at the Center for American War Letters.
